North Devon’s hospital radio service has been given a funding boost.
Tarka Radio has received nearly £8,500 from the Big Lottery Fund for new studio equipment at North Devon District Hospital.
The hospital broadcasts all day, every day to patients in the hospital.
Tarka Radio chairman Keith Turner said new equipment would give the station the potential to provide entertainment ‘outside the hospital’s walls’.
