Great British Radio (GBR) is launching a regular slot for charity interviews.

The new radio station was launched last month by Mike Osman and has been financially backed by plumbing contractor Charlie Mullins.

GBR plans to schedule a regular slot called Shine a Light, where actress Linda Lusardi will interview registered charities and other nonprofits about the work they do.

Shine a Light will launch on May 24 with an interview with Debbie Pezzani, co-founder of Teens Unite, a Hertfordshire-based charity which supports young people who have been diagnosed with cancer.

GBR will be accepting applications from niche charities on a rolling basis. The feature will be weekly to start, but may increase to more slots per week based on merit, a spokesperson told Civil Society News.

GBR can be heard online and on the DAB+ network in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Surrey and South and North London.

Osman said: “The charity sector does fantastic work. We want to give a platform to unsung heroes who work tirelessly to help others. We’d love to hear from organizations and individuals who want to get involved.”
