Three hospital radio volunteers have been praised for their efforts.

Zara Bryson and Rebekah Marsh were both awarded Jack Petchey awards for outstanding achievement for their work on Radio Northwick Park.

They each won £200 for the radio station which they can choose how to spend.

Zara said: “Whatever else is going on in my week, volunteering at Radio Northwick Park is always a highlight.

“The patients and fellow volunteers are like an ever-expanding family and I am absolutely thrilled to win the Jack Petchey award for something I enjoy being part of so much.”

Charles Biggie, who also volunteers at the Northwick Park Hospitals radio station, was also recognised for his efforts.

At Radio Northwick Park’s AGM he was named the station’s Biggest Ever Individual Fundraiser.

Mr Biggie, who has completed numerous challenges to raise money for Radio Northwick Park, said a few words to volunteers present at the meeting.

He said: “Against a background of continuing recession, and a growing number of high profile charities vying for public donation, it’s harder than ever to raise funds.

“To fundraise, it doesn’t have to be anything major, as in my experience, I’ve noticed that to a lot of people any efforts is seem as more of an achievement then we ourselves perceive it to be.”

The radio station is an award winning charity that has been broadcasting since 1971.

It is run by volunteers and broadcasts 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
