Over the last 10 years Phoenix FM has had continued support from the Community Foundation For Calderdale and last year was no exception.
Through the Action Halifax Fund we were able to commence work on our new studios at Fletchers Mill and through the newly established Mackintosh Fund we continued cleaning the grave of John and Violet Mackintosh, situated at All Saints Churchyard in Skircoat Green.
With the support of the CFFC we have been able to serve our community in a variety of ways throughout our first Decade and with new projects being planned for 2018 we hope that the partnership will long continue to benefit Calderdale residents.
In September, Phoenix FM was shortlisted in the Best use of Technology category at the Community Spirit Awards 2017. The awards ceremony, hosted by Anna Foster from BBC 5 Live, took place on Thursday September 28th at The Venue, Barkisland. We were runners up to SCOPE but were proud to be included in the event and again, the room was full of people representing the Voluntary Sector; many who have appeared on Phoenix FM and others who we hope will take the opportunity to be our guests in the future.
