3CR Film Fundraiser

Bring your friends for a movie night out at 3CR’s screening of the new political comedy ‘Pride’ on Thursday 6 November. Set in the Margaret Thatcher’s England in the summer of 84, ‘Pride’ is the story of how a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists join forces with the National Union of Mineworkers to raise money to support the strikers' families.

June is always an exciting time at the station. It’s when we feel the love from all our listeners and supporters as we raise funds to keep the station going for another year. Our 2022 Radiothon theme is ‘Keep Community Strong’ and we’re so proud of the hundreds of volunteers who continue to create great community radio week in, week out, for listeners far and wide. Our independence and community control is vital, and our June Radiothon is when you get to show your support for community owned media with a tax deductible donation. Listen up, and chip in! Thanks to the delightful Annie Walter for this year’s Radiothon designs.

Artist statement: Flowers grow, the world revolves, and we make it through another day. While the sun sets, the diminishing rays ignite our own introspection on the status quo and our part in that. As we take stock of where we are, intertwined is a wealth of knowledge and strength.  This is the destination, and now is the journey.
