Charities are being invited to apply to appear in a new radio slot that will highlight the work of good causes.
Great British Radio, which was launched last month by the DJ Mike Osman with financial backing from the multimillionaire plumbing entrepreneur Charlie Mullins, is looking for charities to feature in a weekly slot called Shine a Light.
The station, which is available on the DAB+ network in and around London, said the slot would include an interview with a featured charity conducted by the TV personality Linda Lusardi.
The feature will launch on 24 May with an interview with Debbie Pezzani, co-founder of the Hertfordshire-based charity Teens Unite, which supports young people who have been diagnosed with cancer.
There is no charge to be included in the slot, which is expected to last for about six or seven minutes with a break for a song in the middle.
Osman said: “The charitable sector does a fantastic job. We want to give a platform to the unsung heroes who work tirelessly to help others. We’d love to hear from organisations and individuals who wish to take part.”
The station is still too new to have any audited figures for listener numbers.
Charities interested in putting themselves forward for the slot can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
