Cambridge 105 Radio has worked hard since commencing broadcasting to build strong links with local community groups and charities. Every week we receive several requests to support local charities’ events, or simply to help raise awareness.
Cambridge 105 Radio is proud to support local organisations which serve the needs of our listeners, and to be an active & positive force in our area.
At the same time, it is important to highlight that we are a Community Radio station, manned largely by unpaid volunteers (Only our Station Manager, Sales Manager and Outreach & Corporate Development Manager receive any form of payment). As such we rely on advertising, sponsorship & donations to survive.
There are also limitations as to how much advertising we can run each hour, so it is important that we get the balance right between commercial & charity airtime.
Our Charity Policy
What’s On Guide:
All charities & not-for-profit community groups are able to take advantage of this free service. Events will be listed on our website; this webpage is also used as a regular feature by our on-air presenters.
Commercial Airtime Rates:
Cambridge 105 Radio offers extremely competitive rates for advert production & airtime. A one month, professionally produced commercial can cost as little as £148 + VAT (£49 + VAT Production costs; £99 + VAT for 99 plays per month).
Charity Event Partnerships:
If you have an event that you would like us to consider backing, there are a number of options available.
- Full Backing with 3rd Party Sponsor
Cambridge 105 Radio will fully support your event, including providing Outside Broadcast facilities. All costs are covered by a 3rd party sponsor.
- Full Backing without 3rd Party Sponsor
Cambridge 105 Radio will cover your event, but would ask you to cover basic production costs. Cambridge 105 Radio will donate the airtime to an agreed schedule.
- Existing Client organising a charity event or appeal
Cambridge 105 Radio will donate the airtime to promote this event, including on-air interviews. If an advert is to be run, we would ask that basic production costs are met.
