Community First – 31st July 2015

Community First: Winchester have today announced the winners of the 2015 Winchester “Have Your Say” grants public vote. We’re happy to say that Winchester Radio was in the top 10 most-popular projects, and we will be receiving the full £1000 that we asked for to fund our campaign for a community radio station for the city of Winchester. Thanks to all who voted for us.

Our Chairman, Anna O’Brien is quoted in the press release saying:

“FANTASTIC NEWS! Thank you so so much! This money is a huge thing to a small charity such as ours, and will enable us to proceed with our FM Community Radio application.Thanks to the Community First team for driving these Grants on behalf of HCC. Important there are funding opportunities such as these HYSGs for small grassroots charities who aren’t in the position of the bigger organisations to go down the commissioning route.”
