Bedrock Radio, the Community Health and Hospital Radio service broadcasting to patients at Queen’s Hospital in Romford, and King George’s Hospital in Goodmayes , plus the local community online, will be raising funds by hosting a 25 hour live programme!
The Big Bedrock Broadcast Marathon will start on Saturday 30th October at midday, and run through to midday on Sunday 31 October. During the Broadcast we enter Daylight Savings Time (GMT) around 2am, which makes the marathon 25 hours!
Volunteers of Bedrock Radio will be coming into the studios around the clock to host the Big Bedrock Broadcast Marathon, on the buildup and during this event where the public can get involved by sponsoring a song of their choice starting from £2.00.

Like many charities, the Covid pandemic halted a lot of Bedrock’s activities and their ability to get out into the community to promote and raise funds for the charity operated radio station. At the height of the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns, Bedrock Radio managed to adapt schedules and keep on-air for patients and staff in our local hospitals, for many this provided a connection to the outside during a period of social isolation.
Beverley Stroud, Trustee, Fundraising Officer said “This is a fun event for our volunteers and the public to get involved with Bedrock Radio. The money raised goes directly into running our charity keeping us on-air”.
Mathew Watson, Trustee, Station Manager, Bedrock Radio added, “We are very grateful for all the donations we receive, and to our volunteers who give their time generously to entertaining patients in what has been a difficult time for the whole community”.
Please get involved with this amazing live on air marathon and sponsor a song for £2!
