We’ve had some awesome news – the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust has been chosen for a BBC Radio 4 Appeal!
In case you’ve not heard of this before, the BBC Radio 4 Appeal is a weekly programme highlighting the work of a charity and appealing for donations.
Each chosen charity produces a short appeal, broadcast three times in one week – twice on Sunday at 7.54am and 9.25pm and repeated on Thursday at 3.27pm on BBC Radio 4 (92.4-94.6 FM and LW 198).
The Trust’s appeal will be broadcast during Christmas week, first on Sunday 22 December and repeated on Boxing Day.
Frank Fletcher, Trust CEO said: “This is an incredible opportunity to support even more young people in rebuilding their confidence after cancer.
“The ongoing challenges many young people face after treatment ends are not recognised enough. This appeal provides a brilliant platform to increase awareness of why ongoing post-treatment support is so vital, and to raise funds to help the Trust achieve its aim of reaching and supporting more young people in recovery.”
Over the next few months, we will be working with the producer on the appeal content, presentation and recording.
We will then need the help of everyone who cares about the difference the Trust makes to encourage as many people as possible to tune in and support the appeal. Watch this space!
