Next Thanet Community Lotto draw on Sat 4 April at 8PM
The draw is in 3 days 11 hours 30 minutes!
Academy FM Thanet went on air for the first time on the 5th April 2010, and now celabrating our 10th year we have become an established part of the Thanet Community. As a Registered charity and based in the Royal Harbour Academy School in Ramsgate, our purpose is to serve the whole of Thanet as their Community Radio Station.
We are also proud to be supporting approximately 29 Thanet organisations offering free advertising and interviews. Groups, like, Age concern Thanet, Newington Big Local, Young Carers, RNLI, Thanet Community Support Partnership, TOFS, Ageless Thanet, Carers Support CDT, Ageless Thanet, Over 50’s forum, Thanet Volunteering Bureau, Home Start, SOBS, Oasis Thanet, Tag Pet Rescue, SENSE, Intergeneration groups and many more.
We offer unique opportunities for all ages and abilities, to experience what it’s like to be in a working radio station. We teach core transferable skills such as interview techniques, radio editing, news gathering, writing, broadcasting and radio show presentation. Each person learns at their own pace under the guidance of experienced radio professionals. Our Presenter training happens throughout the week, in studio 1 and 2. It’s incredible how the power of music can unite people from all walks of life. And when people join our training projects they not only grow in confidence but learn new skills.
Many of the presenters come from a background in Radio, management, presenting, programing and sales. We are passionate and dedicated to the radio station, we love what we do, love to share it, and encourage people to join in, train and volunteer.
We need your help because as you know we rely on donations, and grants to be able to meet the running costs of the radio station. We have several businesses that support us through advertising, and our listeners always support our events and some have joined "The Friends of Academy FM"
One of our listeners recently said that Academy FM do so much by just being there and the knowledge that you can call at any time and talk to us means so much.
That really meant a lot to hear her say that.
Thank you as always for all your support and friendship
