Volunteers at Hospital Radio Plymouth had a Christmas and New Year to remember, bringing fun to the wards of Derriford Hospital.

Live programmes came from Bickleigh Ward on Christmas Eve with longest-serving volunteer Steve Glanville, and from Hexworthy and Honeyford on Christmas Day with volunteers Keith Jolley, Marianne Winter and Jo Carpenter.

Hexworthy featured again on New Year’s Eve, as Keith and Marianne joined The Big Broadcast, a programme coordinated in Lancashire and broadcast to over 50 hospital radio stations across the country.

Station Manager Keith Jolley said: “It was fantastic to be able to do this. We were trying out new equipment which doesn’t have trailing wires and we hope to do one live programme from the wards a week in the future.”

HRP is celebrating 50 years of visiting patients, collecting requests and broadcasting to Derriford Hospital and its offshoots this year.
