Members of the two Lions Clubs in Newquay, Newquay Lions and Towan Blystra, came together to support an important part of the local community recently when they heard that Radio Newquay were seeking funds for some additional equipment to enhance their live outside broadcast facilities.
Radio Newquay, a not-for-profit community station which can be heard on FM and online throughout the Newquay and district area, has been broadcasting for over five years and has built up a large following of listeners. One of the station directors and presenters, Sarah Bunt, showed off the equipment to some of the Lions at the recent charity Newquay Beer Festival at Hendra Holiday Park, where Radio Newquay broadcast from live on the Friday afternoon.
Sarah said: “The Rodecaster is a fantastic piece of equipment that allows presenters to do all the work they need. Having this kit will mean other equipment will be freed up for more people to use as we are looking to bring more volunteers from the community on board and train them to help us enhance our coverage of news and events.”
The two Lions clubs shared the £500 cost between them from their community accounts which members of the public contribute to throughout the year to support local good causes.
