Supporting Local Charities

Throughout December on Irvine Beat FM we will be highlighting local charities.

2020

It’s been a tough year for everyone. Charities across Ayrshire have had to cancel vital fundraising events in 2020.

As a local community radio station, we are running this feature as a thank you to all volunteer-led charities. A salute to volunteers who give up their time and work tirelessly for the good of others and the community.

As we run this feature, we urge you to show your support for these charities. Even a click / follow & like on their Facebook page is a show of support and will allow them to reach a wider audience when fundraising events return to normal in 2021.
