Yesterday evening Rock Radio Action held their ‘The Big Charity Quiz Night’ raising £2,037.60.
A statement from Rock Radio follows below:
Rock Radio Action is the radio station’s fundraising initiative which aims in 2019 to raise over £25,000 for two key charities - GibSams and the Gibraltar Alzheimer's & Dementia Society.
Both organisations were at the quiz night raising awareness of their two vital services. Each of the two key charities will receive 40% of the total funds raised across the year with the remaining 20% distributed amongst other charity projects suggested by the station’s listeners.
As well as the Gibraltar Alzheimer’s & Dementia Society and GibSams, Rock Radio Action will be working throughout the year to raise the profile of other local charities and action groups not only financially but with promotion on the radio.
Station Director of Rock Radio, Daniel Harrison said: “Rock Radio has community at its heart. Our team is passionate about supporting causes close to them. Even though we are a brand new independent radio station, the support that we have received has been amazing. Promoting good causes on air and in person is the very least we can do as the new voice of Gibraltar. This is the start of one incredible year of fundraising. We are always here as a loud voice for good causes and we urge charities to come forward and use the airwaves to promote their events.”
