BBC Radio Cambridgeshire: Helping us Raise the Roof

Raise the Roof with BBC Radio Cambridgeshire

The Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice team has been overwhelmed by the generosity of BBC Radio Cambridgeshire and its listeners during a year of support for the Thorpe Hall Capital Appeal.

The Raise the Roof campaign has seen Cybermen marching through Peterborough city centre, reporter Johnny Dee getting lost in lycra, presenter Paul Stainton soaked in a bucket of iced water, the station's first on-air auction in years, opera singer Paul Potts heralding the sunset and numerous interviews with staff, volunteers, patients and families.

The year long partnership was rounded off with a three hour broadcast live from Thorpe Hall's new hospice building where BBC Radio Cambridgeshire had helped 'raise the roof'.
