Wolverhampton radio presenter in charity DJ marathon

Wolverhampton | Entertainment | Published:

A radio presenter from Wolverhampton is to be live on air for 36 hours straight to raise funds for a well-known city charity.

WCR (Wolverhampton Community Radio) FM host James Levett, from Pendeford, did a 24-hour radio marathon last year, raising more than £1,000.

Now, 21-year-old has upped the ante this year, starting on Easter Monday at 9am raising money for the city's Compton Hospice. Levett said: "Just over a year ago, I went live here for 24 hours raising money for Compton Hospice, which saw us raise over £1,000. Unfortunately, since the last broadcast and during the last four months, Compton have experienced a number of break-ins at six of their charity stores.

A Just Giving page with a £5,000 target has been set up.
