About the Project
As a truly community radio station we engage with charities and other community groups on a weekly basis. We work particularly closely with the Talking Newspaper to produce weekly audible news for blind & partially sighted people completely free of charge. We promote local charities and we also work with schools and colleges giving children confidence and life skills.
About the Charity
FromeFM is a Frome based non-profit community radio station run by Frome Community Productions CIC. Produced by over 100 members, it broadcasts new programmes every month online and on 96.6FM. FromeFM provides niche music programmes; Frome focussed debates and reportage; sustained support for and coverage of the work of community groups; and radio for children. We are looking for funding to complete our studio builds in the newly reopened Frome Town Hall as well as licensing fees for the year.
