John Shepherd, a presenter from Ridgeway Radio, said: "Ridgeway Radio does not receive funding and with most of radio broadcasting now taken care of by computers, we desperately needed to update our studio equipment. We are extremely grateful to the team at Poundbury Gardens for their support and generous donation of a computer. We are also really looking forward to introducing a new weekly gardening feature with Lucy Simpson, the manager of Poundbury Gardens."
Lucy Simpson, manager of Poundbury Gardens, added: "Knowing how invaluable the station’s entertainment is to the patients, it’s a real pleasure to be able to support Ridgeway Radio. I am really looking forward to joining the line-up and contributing with the new gardening slot on John Shepherd’s show, where I’ll be offering seasonal tips, advice and talking about my favourite plants."
Humphries Kirk, Cummings & Co and the Weymouth Sea Life Centre also donated computers, while Weymouth Morrisons funded one of the new computers from an in store bag packing campaign.
