The total impact of the Covid restrictions can never be quantified. For CHBN, Truro's Hospital and Community Radio Station, the consequences were not just financial. For nearly three years, only the technical team have had access to our studios at the Royal Cornwall Hospital. Our presenters have been broadcasting from their own mini studios at home.
Fancy helping CHBN raise money in a new way? Well, now you can!
In the month of September CHBN invites you to take part in covering 30 miles in 30 days. You don’t need to have any previous experience of running or walking long distances and you can probably even cover the distance without knowing about it. You can complete the mileage in any form you like, walking, running, swimming, cycling, treadmill, rowing, exercise bike, so long as you are not powered by a motor anything goes! This is your challenge, some may say Your Station, Your Community, Your Challenge!
CHBN is proud to be supporting the RCHT Charity's first ever fund raising Treadmill Challenge with Special programmes at 11.00 am-1.00pm on Thursday 16 June and Friday 17 June,
Mike Brown will host the programmes, supported by reporters on the scene Clarissa Jacobs and Peter Dowsett covering the start and finish of the event.
The treadmill trots off at midday on June 16th and will see a crack team of RCHT colleagues pounding it mercilessly for 24 hours by Trelawny entrance at Royal Cornwall Hospital!
