Posted by ep256 at Feb 15, 2018 09:51 AM |
The University’s student radio station are hosting their annual broadcast in aid of Leicester Marrow between 3pm on 16 February and noon on 19 February

Galaxy Radio station are back for their annual charity marathon that will see the station broadcast a range of content continuously for 69 hours (with some presenters even sleeping in the studio!)

Radio presenters are encouraged to be as creative as possible; some of this year’s shows include The Fake News Show, That K-Pop Show and Sexpression’s Sextravaganza! Galaxy Radio have partnered up with other student groups and societies such as Sexpression, LUTheatre, Band & gig and LGBT+  to mix up the broadcast and showcase a range of talents and content.

Henry Lavender, Station Manager says "I am very excited to build on last year’s success with our upcoming marathon. We’ve really pulled out all the stops to make 2018 our best broadcast yet and raise as much money as possible for Anthony Nolan."

Last year, Galaxy Radio set an original target of £420 but exceeded expectations, raising £930 for Bloodwise, making it the station’s most successful year. This year, Galaxy have chosen to support the student volunteering society, Leicester Marrow, which supports Anthony Nolan. Anthony Nolan saves the lives of people with blood cancer, such as leukaemia, by matching them to people willing to donate their bone marrow or blood stem cells for a lifesaving transplant. This years target is £1000, and you can donate here.

The broadcast begins on Friday 16 February at 3pm and ends on Monday 19 February at noon.

You can listen in via their website, TuneIn and even by asking your Amazon Echo or Google Home to play ‘Galaxy Radio Leicester.’ The entire broadcast will also be streaming live via Facebook, which you can watch here.
