Chesil Radio Helps Raise £425 For Good Cause

Chesil Radio is proud to share that the quiz hosted by ourselves at The "Award Winning" Royal Oak on Dorchester Road, Weymouth, raised £425 on the night, and the collection pot is still on the bar for any additional donations for young Wilf and his family.

With the quiz and raffle going down well with the pub goers, additional raffle tickets had to be bought halfway through, the total raised was topped up by the pub and the quiz winners donating back their winnings for such a great cause.

Nikki, who was the quiz mistress, said: "It was a pleasure to give our time for such a great cause, that came about on a passing comment on New Years Eve. It's what we do at the station, give back to the local community whenever we can. I write all the quizzes for the station, and usually they are used to raise funds for the day-to-day running of the station, but when something like this comes up, it's great to be able to offer something back."

Nikki added: " We would like to thank the landlord and staff for their support in making the night a success, and for all the donations of raffle prizes from various people and companies to help on the night raise much needed funds."


Some of Wilf's family were present on the night, and they passed on their thanks through Nikki, and although Wilf is making good progress, sadly there is still a long way to go, so if you have any spare change please drop it in the pot at the end of the bar.

Nikki is a qualified celebrant and is also available for quiz nights, discos, award ceremonies, etc across Weymouth, Dorchester and Portland, subject to availability, if any venues are interested in more details email: nikki@chesilradio.com . Any money or donations from these events, usually, are to assist with the day-to-day running of Chesil Radio, as Nikki gives her time as a volunteer to the station, as the station is run by volunteers as a not-for-profit local online radio station, but on this occasion, all monies raised were donated to Wilf and his family.
