Brewers were thrilled to be the lead
sponsor of Eastbourne Youth Radio, who have returned for the 23rd
year. The radio show airs between the 15th-17th of
November, representing 12 schools and colleges across East Sussex and involving
over 800 students.
Eastbourne Youth Radio (EYR) returns
to the airwaves on 87.7FM and online at www.eyr.org.uk. Broadcast from studios
at East Sussex College in Eastbourne, EYR sees students aged from 5-19 from
local schools and other organisations, present their radio shows covering a
wide range of topics – much of it live.
This year’s broadcast coincides with important
calendar dates including Anti-Bullying Week, Global Entrepreneurship Week, UK
Parliament Week and BBC Children in Need. Individual programmes covers all of
these during the packed 3-day schedule.
Eastbourne Youth Radio is all about
enabling young people to research, produce, present and perform their own
material in association with community partners for a family audience. From
this, they learn and develop a whole range of skills that they will find
helpful in future life.
Brewers Director, Alison Brewer said: “We are delighted to once again, support the Eastbourne Youth Radio, a very worthwhile project in our heartland of Eastbourne. We’ve seen first-hand the wonderful opportunities the project offers the students; developing organisational, technical and creative skills and giving the opportunity to delve deeper in topics that directly affect them and their future. We’re excited to be involved and hear what the young people of Eastbourne have to say!’
