Starting January 2019 we started delivering, Sound Conclusions, an exciting 30 month project funded by The National Lottery Community Fund, for people from Doncaster to get involved and volunteer in music and community radio services, funded by the TNL Community Fund
The National Lottery Community Fund funded project focusses on nurturing community participation using creativity and volunteering opportunities. It also includes funding to develop areas within our HQ on Nether Hall Road.
Project activities bring local people of all ages from different social and economic backgrounds, to work together, learn, enjoy new experiences, and take active roles in delivering community music and media services for the wider community. Through these activities, participants build stronger relationships with each other. The project is also working to bridge gaps and build links between local communities.
