BBC RADIO HUMBERSIDE IS 40 YEARS OLD THIS YEAR.
To help celebrate and mark the occasion the radio station is raising money to support St Andrew’s Children’s Hospice in Grimsby. The charity helps children with life-limiting illnesses. They work with families on both sides of the River Humber Estuary.
Andy Comfort presents the station’s Breakfast Show, and as you may have heard on the Radio and on BBC Look North, he is hitting the road on his bicycle to raise money for the appeal.
Andy with two BBC colleagues, Adam Barber and Stuart Deakin, are already cycling 40-miles-a-day around the region. The five-day marathon started on Monday 21st February and will come to Hedon on Friday 25th February.
They are expected to be at St Augustine’s Gate, Hedon at about 3.50pm. Let us hope folk from Hedon can come along and meet Andy, Adam and Stuart, give them a wave and pop some cash in their collecting tins.
We will follow Andy Comfort via his @BBCHumberAppeal Twitter account on the Blog – see side-bar, 3rd down.
