Radio Horton makes donation to Oxford Hospitals Charity

This article is more than two years old.

In light of the recent COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, the Trustees of Radio Horton agreed to make a generous donation of £150 to Oxford Hospitals Charity, which is supporting staff at the Horton General Hospital including those who are working in areas directly impacted by the coronavirus.

In a letter sent to Oxford Hospitals Charity, on behalf of the Radio Horton Committee, Chairman, Anthony Brown wrote:

"We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude for the incredibly hard work that you and your team have undertaken in the midst of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic and recognise the invaluable support that Oxford Hospitals Charity is providing to doctors, nurses, clinicians, clerical staff, cleaners, porters, admin staff and all at the Horton General Hospital and Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust."

"As a charity ourselves, based within the Horton General Hospital, we appreciate the challenges involved with fundraising and wanted to acknowledge our full support to you through this global pandemic and to show that we stand shoulder to shoulder with everybody working in our hospitals during these difficult and unprecedented times."

Joe Baker from Oxford Hospitals Charity (including the Horton General Hospital Charity) said:

"Thank you so much for the kind donation and for the support that you are giving us during this challenging time... Rest assured that your donation will help make a real difference to our staff."

The hospital radio station has suspended all of its activities from within the Horton General Hospital including ward visiting and live programming but is continuing to broadcast some live or pre-recorded programmes where presenters have the facilities to do so at home.
