Radio Lollipop Newcastle celebrates 35th Birthday today
14 July 2017  

A long time ago in a hospital far, far away - well in Newcastle's Fleming Memorial Hospital on 14th July 1982 - there began the first broadcast of the second Radio Lollipop in the UK. Over the last 35 years every one of our volunteers has been committed to providing care, comfort and play to the sick children of the North East of England and sometimes from further afield.

Over the years we have moved "home" from the Fleming to the RVI and then into the fantastic facility in the Great North Children's Hospital and adapted to the huge changes that have taken place during that time. However, our original values have stood us in good stead and when a volunteer can bring a smile to a poorly child and their families it is worth its weight in gold.

Here's to the next 35 years.
