Christmas FM returns to the airwaves this week with Cadbury, Coca-Cola and An Post as main sponsors. As the running of the radio station is funded by sponsorship, all donations raised by Christmas FM this year will go to Barretstown, the charity that helps seriously ill children with services which are provided to the public entirely free of charge.
The station celebrates its 12th year on air.
Since it first began broadcasting, Christmas FM has raised just under €2 million for Temple Street, Sightsavers, ISPCC, Barnardos, Simon, Age Action, Aware, Make-A-Wish and Focus Ireland. In 2019, Christmas FM wants to ‘press play’ on over 850 days of life changing programmes at Barretstown, rebuilding the lives of seriously ill children.
Christmas FM will broadcast from the Ballsbridge Hotel in Dublin from 1pm on Thursday, November 28. The studio space is given free of charge. A host of familiar radio voices will volunteer their time to bring listeners round-the-clock Christmas tunes and festive updates, as well as sharing their special Christmas memories and favourite holiday experiences.
