On Thursday 5 October 2017 the day dawn grey – overcast and raining menacingly. Not the ideal day for transporting audio mixers, microphones and other assorted items into a school for a major outside broadcast. Fortunately, by lunchtime, the day had changed completely and all was set fair for our ‘school trip’.
On Sunday 20th August 2017 a team of volunteers from CHBN were at Sainsbury’s in Truro raising funds for the Hospital Radio service by packing bags and helping customers with their shopping.
The team raised a fantastic £688.39. A heartfelt thank you to all the shoppers who supported us on the day.
Two Truro organisations which promote good mental health - and who have both recently featured on CHBN - are joining forces to host a special evening to mark World Mental Health Day this October.
Stacie Clark of New Day Knitwear and Hayley Stanton of Quiet Connections will be opening the doors to their office so that people who have been affected by, or know someone who has been affected by, mental health issues such as anxiety, depression and low self-esteem can connect and create with one another in a calm, relaxed environment.
CHBN have now launched a new and improved web stream for those who listen to the station online.
In addition to the quality and reliability being improved, we now also offer two streams - AAC STEREO and MP3 MONO.
The AAC stereo stream offers the best quality using highly efficient state-of-the-art audio technology and should play in most browsers on most devices.
On Sunday 14th June 2015, the second Walk for Wards took place at Trebah Gardens near Falmouth, raising money for the Royal Cornwall Hospitals Charity.
Walk for Wards, is part of a national initiative and at RCHT was used to raise funds for the Royal Cornwall, St Michael’s and West Cornwall hospitals. Walkers are able to raise money for individual wards, departments or RCHT’s general charitable fund.
The walk was supported by many departments and staff from within the hospital's trust together with local people who were keen to support their local hospital.
CHBN has scooped the Silver Award for “Best Station Promotion” at the National Hospital Radio Awards 2015, which took place on 28th March in Newcastle.
The judges said the following about our entry, which was a promotion appealing for new volunteers: “Interesting retro-style to this promo, with good sound effects that assist in the delivery of a clear message with humour”.
