Silver Success (Wirral News)

Silver Success (Wirral News) The Wirral News wrote: "Merseybeat singer Gerry Marsden has helped a Wirral charity win a national award. Judges at the annual Hospital Radio Awards voted Radio Clatterbridge one of the best in the country. The station won silver at a ceremony in Belfast last weekend for an on-air advert which promoted Clatterbridge Hospital’s Staff Achievement Award. Gerry features on the 50-second production which asks patients to nominate their favourite hospital worker. It was produced by Granada TV reporter Andy Bonner, who is a volunteer at the charity. Said Andy: 'This award is a great vote of confidence for all of our volunteers who, each week, give up hours of their free time to entertain the patients. It also proves that we can provide a professional, relevant service to our listeners despite not having a big budget.'"
