We would like to say a huge thank you to the team at Fort William Mountain Warehouse for a donation of £311 from their customised tote bags. Mountain Warehouse chose Nevis Community Radio for their charity this year. The bags were sold in the local store with a donation from each sale being given to us.
When the largest cruise ship to visit Fort William arrived on Sunday 9th June, Nevis Radio were there with the Fort William Marina and Shoreline Company to welcome her.
We were invited on board this magnificent ship to meet the captain Mr Robert Froenbroek and have a tour of the ships facilities.
We were made very welcome and had a good time looking around. The captain presented us with a personalised model of the ship and allowed us to sound the ships horn to wake up Fort William.
The team at Nevis Community Radio Ltd are proud winners in the 2019 Lochaber VOSCARS.
These awards are nominated for by the public, and then the top 3 are selected by a panel of judges from Voluntary Action Lochaber.
We were nominated in the “Best Supporting Organisation” category, and announced winners at the award ceremony on Thursday 6th June at the Ben Nevis Hotel.
This is a big and very welcome award for the station as it is exactly what we hope we offer our community, that is, support and a vehicle for other groups and organisations to be able to publicise and report on their events and activities.
A huge thanks to those that nominated us and the panel for thinking us worthy winners.
We are very humble, and “CHUFFED” to bits!
