We at RHB provide a unique and tailored broadcasting service to aid in the recovery of patients within the Royal Blackburn Hospital. We also broadcast on the internet so that patients who are looking to convalesce at home will still be able to listen.
Our objective is To relieve sickness, infirmity and old age amongst persons living in the area covered by Blackburn, Darwen, Burnley Hyndburn, Ribble Valley and surrounding areas by providing a local broadcasting service.
Future programming will help to reduce the NHS costs by broadcasting a health and well being message out to the community to better help reduce the amount of people needing to use the NHS service by taking better care of themselves.
RHB is a self funded charity organisation. We need to source income from as many places as possible, our main income comes from sponsors; local businesses who donate money in return for their company mentioned on the radio. More details can be found on our sponsors page.
Donations mainly come from the general public, from collection tins located around the borough or from collection events organised by our volunteers. You can also make a donation on our website.
In 2014 the volunteers of RHB were nominated for ELHT volunteers of the year award. Click the link above to read all about it
