Who are Radio Aire?
Radio Aire were launched in 1981 and are an independent radio station based in Leeds, West Yorkshire. They are owned and operated by Bauer Radio and forms as part of Baurs City 1 network of stations. They have a large audience share and even have sister stations, Radio Aire 2 and Radio Aire 3.
This amazing charity operates across 21 areas around the UK and every year raises millions of pounds for children who may have been the victims of abuse or neglect. Or for those with disabilities, additional needs and need some extra care or guidance.
The donation money is raised by bringing the community together to participate in fundraising events that undergo on and off air. Individuals, groups, schools and companies are encouraged to join in, have some fun and offer a helping hand to our local children, who need it.
This money will go towards buying specialist equipment to enhance the quality of life for these children, which Simon Macbeth is very keen to help. This equipment will then be given to children’s charities and organisations so they can start projects and new initiatives so that essential care and support can continue to be provided through much needed services.
Radio Aire created this charity as they wanted to support our community’s children, as they believe they should be able to live life to the full, achieve their potential and have equal opportunities. Generous donations made go towards bringing hope, happiness and healing to these children.
Every year we, Simon Macbeth and 121 Web Design, raise money for Radio Aires Cash4Kids, as we love to contribute to great causes! This year in May we held a charity auction where we donated a £1000 web design package. This auction was sold for £355 to a generous woman in Leeds.
