Coventry Half Marathon 2019

Neil’s fundraiser for HillzFM & Children In Need – Coventry Half Marathon


Please help him raise as much money as possible for these two fantastic causes:

Hillz community radio was established in 2004 by Hillfields based charity, WATCH (Working Actively To Change Hillfields) to give the local community a voice.

The station first broadcast from the WATCH centre in June 2005, when a four week Restricted Service Licence (RSL) was obtained. This created tremendous local enthusiasm and excitement showing the potential for a community radio station.

Two further RSL took place before the station was awarded a community radio licence in June 2009. This expired in June 2014 and we then received a new 5 year license up to 2019 from OFCOM.

Through the Station, we have undertaken numerous community and youth work projects and helped train people in Radio Production who have never been on radio before. This has led on to people moving into radio education, radio jobs and other media based vocations. Find out more at:

Children in Need is a BBC charity which has an annual fundraising show each November. People from around the UK raise money in a wide variety of ways, from sponsored walks/cycle rides to sitting in baths of baked beans.

Viewers of the show are shown appeal videos and asked to call in to donate money or do so via the website. All the money goes to help vulnerable children in the UK, so those suffering from serious illness or who have a disability, young carers or those at risk of abuse or neglect.
