Radio Horton has lent its support once again to the Horton General Hospital, which is to benefit from £251 raised by the hospital’s radio station team members at its annual collection at Sainsbury’s in Banbury, last December.
Volunteer station team members John Webb and Bob Dainty were on hand to present the cheque earlier this month to Yolanda Jacob, Fundraising Project Manager at the hospital.
The monies raised will go into the hospital’s charitable fund account to be used on projects and equipment for the Horton hospital. HGH’s Jacob, says: “We would like to thank Radio Horton very much indeed for its continued support to the Horton General Hospital.”
Radio Horton has been collecting money at Sainsbury’s for the hospital, for the last 24 years and has raised a total of £14,702. This, together with monies raised at other events, has enabled the station to donate a grand total of nearly £25,000 to the hospital.
Bob Dainty, outside events co-ordinator for the radio station, added: “We’re hoping to hit the £25,000 target with the monies raised at this year’s annual collection at Sainsburys in December. We urge people to dig deep for such a worthy cause and would like to thank Sainsburys for its continuing support.”
This year’s annual Radio Horton collection at Sainsbury’s will take place on Saturday 7th December at the Oxford Road store.
