Join Us

We are on the lookout for enthusiastic and dedicated people to join our team of friendly volunteers at Bay Trust Radio.

The station is based at the Westmorland General hospital Kendal, from where all of our main programmes are produced and presented.

As a volunteer you can get involved with as much or as little as you want, although we do ask for a minimum commitment of a few hours of your time each week. Work involves ward visiting to meet the patients, presentation, production and fund-raising. Perhaps you have a specific skill that would benefit the station? If so, once you are an established member you can join the Committee and take on a more specialist role. This might involve Technical Operations, Outside Broadcasts, and Publicity to name but a few.

Perhaps you want to get experience at the station? We can give you training and you can get vital experience in media. You will make a difference to your local community, have fun, meet great people and gain experience.

Volunteers must be aged 16 years or over to join.You must be committed and reliable, giving of your time on a regular basis. All volunteers are required to take part in fundraising events from time-to-time. Full training on the equipment will be given, but some basic computer knowledge would be helpful as we use a computerised playout system.
