Can you help us?
Cuillin FM is coming to the end of our initial 12 year broadcast licence and we have just received notice of the timetable for re-applying for a further 12 year licence and the costs involved. In order to stay on the air, we have to apply to Ofcom by Tuesday 23rd June and pay £6000 for the application fee.
As most of you know, we are a very small community-based station run mostly by our amazing volunteers and we exist very much on a hand-to-mouth basis. Additionally this year, we are in the middle of making serious repairs to our main transmitter which comes at a huge cost. Essentially, we simply don't have the finances to meet the application fee ourselves.
If you enjoy listening and would like to help us stay on the airwaves around Skye and Lochalsh, please do consider making a donation to Cuillin FM. We have a Just Giving page here, if you'd like to donate that way. Alternatively you can use our BACS details to make any donations. This also means that we keep every penny donated.
Thank you so much.
