Since the closure of our studios in March 2020 as a consequence of Covid 19,
we lost significant income streams from the following areas:
We were unable to deliver SQA training,
Our advertising and sponsorship income is down by approx 70%
We were unable to have our regular fundraising gigs and events.
This has resulted in a deficit of approx £20,000
The station’s monthly outgoings include staff costs, licence fees, rent, utilities etc and are just a few of the monthly obligations that are completely necessary to allow Sunny G Radio to function.
Studio Manager Steven Gilfoyle has been leading the team at Sunny G since April 2020 , and has been a founding member since 2001. He believes the station to be the best community radio station in the country.
He says: “I would challenge anyone to match us in the breadth of our community radio content and community development that we have provided over the years, considering the lack of resource we have had we always provide a high quality service .
We are a small Scottish Charity with a fantastic team of volunteers, our registered Scottish Charity number is: SC031520 We use Radio / Broadcasting Media / Technology for Community Development
We find ourselves trying to survive e in an area that contains many of the sectors that have been hardest hit which has destroyed the income streams we used to rely on. We have a new board working hard and we are optimistic that we can see ourselves through this difficult time with the generous help from supporters of the station and the community we serve and work alongside.
We have lots of exciting ongoing programming and community development ambitions that take Sunny G into 2021 and beyond.
Why does it matter?
