Colne Radio DJ’s were very kindly invited to play at the Waiting Room in Colchester on Friday evening. The community space offered to host a fund raiser evening as part of our campaign to raise £3,000 so that we can broadcast on FM.
Collection buckets led to £30 being raised, with the Waiting Room then making an incredibly generous donation of £70 to help fund our FM ambitions.
Five Colne Radio DJ’s proudly represented the station at Waiting Room. Iceferno, The Leftfield Show, Rob Perfect, Simon Lewis and Johnny Fisher all played a set.
The feedback that we received was positive. Our friends at The Waiting Room are keen to make this a regular feature as part of their programme of events.
The Waiting Room is a community space on the site of the old bus station in Colchester. It hosts many events, from tool workshops, space for local chefs to experiment with their dishes and a monthly local maker bazaar.
We are very grateful to the Waiting Room for asking Colne Radio to have representation on Friday evening.
Our crowd funder continues to run until 4th of July. If we are able to raise £3,000 then Colne Radio will be able to broadcast on FM in North East Essex.
