Radio Cavell provides entertainment and information for the patients, staff and visitors at The Royal Oldham Hospital. We broadcast on 1350AM and Radio Channel Five of the bedside Entertainment ('Hospedia') system.
Radio Cavell is run by volunteers, and, as a charity, we rely on fund raising to enable the station to continue broadcasting. You can help us at no cost to yourself! Though Easyfunding.org.uk you can buy goods online and raise money for Cavell. It works because we receive a small commission for every item purchased but IT DOESN'T COST YOU ANY MORE! Just click on the Easyfunding logo below and you can shop at all the big names. A great way to organise your Christmas Shopping and help Radio Cavell.
