MSP urges support for radio station

8 February 2017

Stornoway-based Isles FM has launched a fundraising appeal to purchase new transmission equipment.


The radio station has been off air since January following after a major fault.


A crowdfunding campaign hopes to raise £8000.


MSP Alasdair Allan who supports the appeal said: “Isles FM is a much-valued community resource and it’s difficult to imagine what the island would be like without it.


“They are often the go-to service for updates in an emergency situation such as a storm or power outage.


“They also reach out to a section of the community that other media simply doesn’t.”
