Claremorris Community Radio strives to be at the heart of the community of southeast Mayo. After more than a decade in existence, the station is stepping up its ambitions to serve the various communities of Claremorris and reflect the diversity and vibrancy of the area.

To help build the station's capacity to achieve these aims, CCR is launching a Progress Fund to raise €6,000 for the station. Proceeds from this fund will go to the following areas:

1. Upgrading equipment: repair and purchase of studio equipment to improve sound quality. Installation of a "live lounge" to broadcast live music on air and enable young bands and artists to record demos. 

2. External communications: upgrade website and other online platforms, and conduct community consultation surveys.

3. Training: CCR offers QQI (previously Fetac) accredited qualifications. These are particularly useful to those seeking employment, but also to those who just want to learn something new. 

4. Community outreach: facilities to enable CCR to cover an increased number of events run by other community groups in the area.

5. Diaspora outreach: Claremorris is a small town but a big community. The Progress Fund wants to help CCR improve online output and podcasting so that the far flung children of Claremorris can hear the sounds of home.

6. General capacity building: the basic running costs of a radio station increase each year. These range from rent, light and heat to insurance and other statutory expenses. 

Claremorris Community Radio has been doing great work for more than ten years. Help it do even better as it faces into the next decade.
