As Balsall Radio, in it’s current state, is an organisation that doesn’t aim to make a profit we are reliant upon donations from local organisations and charities to help cover the costs of running the radio station. Since our launch, we have already have had several donations from local organisations that have contributed to us. While we are now at a stage where we can produce our shows with the correct licences and software we are always looking to improve the quality of our content. To do this we need additional donations (see “how you can sponsor us” section).
Carl Hemming, who is the director of the local estate agent “Ginger Property”, has made a tremendous donation to us in the form of our studio which is located inside the ginger property offices. This has allowed us to improve the quality of content by enabling us to invite guests onto our shows and allows us to even host small musical performances such as from our recent guest Chris Tye who performed live for us. We are grateful for all of Carl’s contributions and continue to look forward to working with him into the future.
Balsall Common Bugle
One of our first contributors was the Balsall Common Bugle who enabled us to cover our licensing costs for the year of 2017. Their generous donation has meant that we can now continue into the future to play copyrighted music on our station while continuing to support the artists that produce the music. The Bugles donation means that we were able to renew our licences for PPL and PRS to provide you with a fully licenced station.
Balsall Common Festival
As many of the people will know, the Balsall Common Festival is a Not-for-profit organisation meaning that any excess profits that they make must either be donated to local organisations or reinvested into the following years festival. We were lucky enough to be selected for a donation to help pay for our software licensing and streaming hosting costs which again, has been a tremendous help in enabling us to continue into the 2017 year while allowing our listeners to have the best possible experience.
