BBC presenters help Hospital Station

Hospital Radio Ipswich is based at Heath Road Hospital where it’s volunteer members broadcast a variety of programmes every day of the week. The aim of the station is to entertain those spending time in the town’s hospital.

This Saturday Mark and Lesley will join HRI staff at Asda Whitehouse as they play music and entertain shoppers. Station mascot Tiggy the Tiger will also be present to meet the children.
