The Southern Area Hospice and the Q Radio Network have in the last week agreed a new partnership which allows the Hospice to speak about fundraising initiatives and the service it provides to the listeners of the Q100.5 and Q106FM radio stations. Fundraising Events Officer for the Southern Area Hospice, Rachel Quinn, spoke about the promotional opportunities the new partnership gives them, “We are hugely excited to work with Q Radio to promote the full calendar of events, activities and campaigns that we have running throughout 2012. It will also be an excellent opportunity for us to reach out to the local community in delivering vital information on the services that we have to offer.” She contuned, “I would like to take this opportunity, on behalf of all the staff, volunteers and patients at the Southern Area Hospice to sincerely thank Q Radio Network for the generous sponsorship throughout 2012 partnership. In this difficult time of economic downturn, support such as this from a local business is truly invaluable to the Hospice, and is therefore very much appreciated.” Robert Walshe, Q Radio Network’s Managing Director, spoke of the importance of the Hospice within the local community, “Q Radio is delighted to become Southern Area Hospice’s media partner for 2012. The Hospice carries out invaluable work in the Southern Health Board Area, supporting and caring for people living in the area and we are delighted to be able to raise awareness of that work through our Q100.5 and Q106 radio stations. The emphasis on ‘local’ has been at the very heart of our re-brand and the new sound of Q Radio and so it is fitting that we are now working with and supporting the Southern Area Hospice which is such a well-recognised local organisation that means a lot to the local community.”
