LifeConnect24 Sponsors Hospital Radio Norwich

• Written by Katie

Since 2013, when LifeConnect24 was founded in Norwich, we’ve become the nation’s favourite provider of personal alarms. Our life-saving service eases strain on the NHS by keeping alarm users safe and independent in their homes. With our service constantly growing, we’re always looking for ways to support good causes.  That’s why we’re proud to announce our sponsorship of Hospital Radio Norwich.

Hospital Radio Norwich

Hospital Radio Norwich (or HRN) is a voluntary organisation and registered charity founded in 1974. They aim to relieve the stress of hospitalisation by entertaining patients through radio broadcasts. HRN broadcasts a very popular daily requests show. They also air hourly news updates, sports commentary, and music to satisfy a variety of tastes. According to their website, they have over 100,000 tracks in their library!

Mike Sarre, HRN’s Chairman, said:

“I would like to thank LifeConnect24 for their sponsorship, which gives us the opportunity to start broadcasting online. This will allow relatives and friends to send in requests and listen to the broadcasts at the same time as their loved ones.”

Mr Sarre added that, thanks to the sponsorship, Hospital Radio Norwich is also hoping to provide their service to residential care homes.


Why LifeConnect24 Is Sponsoring Hospital Radio Norwich

Though we operate across the UK, we’re very proud of our roots in Norfolk. We are absolutely delighted to be able to support Hospital Radio Norwich. Given the current crisis, their excellent work is more important now than ever.

A trip to hospital can be stressful at the best of times. However, most hospital patients are currently unable to have visitors due to the pandemic. As a result, a hospital stay can be quite an isolating experience. Therefore, at times like these, hospital radio is crucial to patients’ wellbeing.

HRN’s service is entirely free to patients 24 hours a day. It therefore relies heavily on contributions from local donors and businesses like LifeConnect24.
