P.C.R.L. radio has been going for 3 years now surviving only on what the P.C.R.L. staff themselves make at their shows (which sometimes is not very much).
The aim of P.C.R.L. is to provide a free community station for the "forgotten" or "neglected" minorities, but never the less time . and time again members of the community come to P.C.R.L. for help and guidance with a variety of ventures and we at P.C. R.L. do as much as we possibly can to help.
Following the "children in need" appeal last year, Crazy G from P.C.R.L.
radio hit upon an idea to start an appeal with. other P.C.R.L. staff, following further discussions Crazy G' started a "toy" appeal, where members of the public sent in unwanted toys, which was a great success but last Christmas we decided to re-create the idea but this time donate money, the appeal was quite successful.
Pledges from member of the public raised £400.00, we ourselves donated £600.00 from shows promoted throughout the year, and £500.00 was donated by the joint sponsor of the appeal
Intemational singing star Freddie McGregor. .
Dr Prendergast a consultant psychiatrist at the Birmingham Children Hospital said the money would be used to buy equipment to assist in he treatment of the children and to train doctors in the treatment of children with psychiatric problems.
There is a definite assurance the appeal would operate again this Christmas because we know the children hospital is in need of as much support as it can be given. Once again a big thanks to the public for
making it work.
Also P.C.R.L. in association. with Marcus Garvey Foundation have launched an appeal for "Jamaican Hurricane Flood Disaster" . Send donation to, MARCUS GARVEY 104 Heathfield Road Handsworth Birmingham or P.C.R.L. 151 Dudley Road Edgbaston Birmingham 18 7QY
