£25,000 fundraising initiative from Rock Radio

Gibraltar’s Hit Music Station - has launched a new fundraising initiative aiming to raise more than £25,000 for local causes in 2019. Rock Radio Action will raise funds through exciting events, shows and challenges with two local based charities being supported throughout the year. 

As a result of suggestions from Rock Radio staff of charities to whom they had a personal connection with, GibSams and the Gibraltar Alzheimer's & Dementia Society were chosen for 2019. Each will receive 40% of the total funds raised by the end of the year with the remaining 20% distributed amongst other worthy causes and projects suggested by the station’s listeners.

Commenting on the initiative, Daniel Harrison, Station Director of Rock Radio said: “from the earliest of conversations about launching Gibraltar’s first independent commercial radio station, we knew we had an obligation to do more than just entertain but also to use our platform for the good of the community. Rock Radio Action will raise vital funds for good causes by fully utilising the marketing opportunities we have available on air and online plus through our growing database of supporters and partners.”
