Help your station Spring into the future. Donate today!

As Spring approaches, we're moving firmly towards the future by servicing our listenership with new programs and podcasts; upgrading our systems and equipment; and up-skilling our volunteers in new broadcasting technologies and software. To do so we need your help.

Thanks to our dedicated volunteers we have been able to continue broadcasting our regular programs and podcasts throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. More than ever, our service is proving to be invaluable to our listeners, particularly those with print disabilities.

Your support will keep the Spring in your station.
