Public File

Each local commercial radio station in the UK has requirements in respect of its music and local content, such as news, speech levels etc. These requirements are set out in the station "Format", a document issued by Ofcom, the UK’s radio regulator. This Public File contains details of the elements that Ofcom regulate, such as music tracks, local news etc. It is intended to give you a better understanding of our output and what we are doing for our local community.

Radio Clyde Cash for Kids is now in its 34th year and raises funds to benefit the most vulnerable children in local communities across Glasgow and the west of Scotland.  Since our first appeal, the excellent work of the charity has assisted over 1.7 million children disadvantaged through poverty, ill health, or special needs by way of family grants, special and sustainable grants and community group grants totalling in excess of £23.7 million.
 
Thanks to the Hunter Foundation every penny donated goes directly to children who need it most.  All money raised on behalf of Cash for Kids stays in the area it was raised in, providing help when and where it’s needed most.
 
We can and do make a difference to the lives of children but can only continue to do so with the support from our corporate supporters and individuals who give generously and want to help make a difference in their local communities.
