Do you have an interest in people, music or radio? If you are over 16 years old then we'd love to hear from you!

We require members from all walks of life who can spare a few hours a week. You don't have to be technically minded but you do need enthusiasm and the desire to help make a difference.

It's not just about presenting shows and playing music though. Speaking with patients and helping with fund raising is an important part of being a member of Sunshine Radio.

So, if you're interested in joining us then please contact us, just click HERE.

We look forward to hearing from you!
(Unfortunately we cannot offer short, work experience placements at the current time.)

Sue Walker:
"In 1974, I spent over eight weeks in hospital at Stanmore where I had an operation. It was the hospital radio which kept me going during that long stay. I used to love the Sunday Bingo sessions and when I came out of plaster after six weeks and started to learn to walk again the rest of the ward had 'These boots are made for walkin' by Nancy Sinatra played for me!

As a result of my experience in Stanmore I became involved with Sunshine Hospital Radio in Weston-super-Mare. I've enjoyed all aspects of volunteering, from meeting patients and presenting shows to joining the Committee and becoming Chairman."

Nicola Melhuish:
"I’ve always had big dreams about working in the media, so I thought volunteering at Hospital Radio would be a “good thing to put on my CV”. However, I was unaware that it would soon become one of my favourite things to do!

I love visiting the patients for their requests. It’s nice to know that some are expecting to see you, and looking forward to making a request. Sometimes you can brighten someone’s day who may not have had a visitor that day. We may only be playing a 4 minute song, but it's so rewarding to know that by doing so, you’ve made someone’s stay in hospital that little bit better.

While I have gained experience that may help with my future career, I have also gained a whole range of other experiences… some that I never thought I would gain through volunteering. Joining Sunshine Radio is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made."
