Some of the Erewash Sound presenters will be walking from Ilkeston to Long Eaton to raise money for your local radio station! 

You won't be able to miss the presenters - Anjelica, Jeannie and Lucy, as they will be dressed in their most festive (but warm) attire, bringing their Christmas spirit to Ilkeston and Long Eaton town centres. It will be a fantastic (yet, acceptably tiring) day.

The walk will be on the morning of Saturday 23rd December 2023. Keep an eye on our socials (Facebook, X, Instagram and Threads @erewashsound) for more details on the trio's start time and route so that you can cheer them on along the way. 

Erewash Sound has a track record for nurturing success, with 26 people so-far having left for roles in the media industry – we're proud but not surprised; you can get training elsewhere, but what they can offer is a real 24-hour FM radio station to get real experience.

The organisation is a not-for-profit community interest company, with over 40 regular volunteers, supported by two part-time employed roles to coordinate and develop a considerable number of radio station activities.

Every donation is greatly appreciated. Since the pandemic, Erewash Sound has suffered from a serious lack of funding. Many of our potential advertisers are struggling due to the cost of living crisis, which has impacted negatively on the funding for the station. 

Hopefully, you will spot the walkers on their journey and you can give them a wave!

Any donations are appreciated no matter how big or small.  Thank you.
