Radio Enfield appeals for volunteers

Radio Enfield, the hospital radio station for Chase Farm, is seeking volunteers who could spend a couple of hours per week to speak to hospital patients and collect requests.

The station, which began in 1970, runs twenty four hours a day and is looking to fill its interactive request show, which is on air every evening.

Manager Andy Higgins said, “Request collectors really are key volunteers and their work is greatly appreciated by patients and staff at the hospital”.
