Radio South Tyneside has announced a new sponsor for their On Request programme with Leeds Building Society backing the show until the end of 2015. Leeds Building Society have a branch in South Tyneside District Hospital - and are virtually next door neighbours to the station which has broadcast free to the patients and staff for almost 60 years.
Speaking about the sponsorship, Communications Manager Simon Smith said "2016 will be the stations 60th Anniversary and one of our main ambitions to mark the event is to begin broadcasting online so that people who have enjoyed our programming whilst in hospital, can continue to do so at home. We are a self funding charity so any corporate help like we have received from Leeds Building Society is more than welcome."
To earmark the relationship, Leeds Building Society are giving customers the chance to win a Kindle Fire HD, simply by visiting their branch in the hospital. The branch is open every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9.30am - 2.30pm.
