Sunday 6th May Bluebell Walk and Ride at Rutland Water

03 May 2018 – On Sunday 6th May the Bluebell Walk and Cycle Ride at Rutland Water returns for 2018. Everyone is welcome to come and join us. We have challenges suitable for all abilities from short walks to a lengthy cycle ride!.

Join the hundreds this year at Rutland Water for the annual Bluebell Walk & Cycle Ride to help raise awareness of Crohn’s & Colitis UK.  Choose a 2 or 5 mile walk or a 17 or 25 mile cycle ride around Rutland Water, starting at the Whitwell Car Park on the North Shore, postcode LE15 8BL.  Radio Fox will be there to see you set off anywhere between 10am to 12 noon. Challenge yourself, friends or just bring the family along for a great time through the tree-lined and bluebell paths of Rutland Water.  Find some sponsors for your effort, bring a picnic or use the cafes on site. If you wish don’t forget to take part in the optional fancy dress theme. This year’s theme is ‘Shades Of Purple’. Or of course you could just come and enjoy a walk through the bluebells and listen to the music of Radio Fox. Or even have a nice cup of tea at The Crafty Fox cafe.

Coming soon to a hospital near you. The Radio Fox 30th Birthday Party.

11 Apr 2018 – On 23rd April 2018 Radio Fox will be 30 years old. We’re not looking bad for our age and we’re still as trendy as ever.

Somehow the registered charity Radio Fox has survived 30 years without any official funding.  Recently after 2 years of fundraising by our members we are currently refurbishing our main studio and we want to celebrate our 30th birthday.  On Sunday 22nd April there will be a whole day of 30th birthday broadcasting, from 8am until after midnight see our Birthday Schedule. Over all those years since Radio Fox began many many volunteer presenters have visited and entertained the patients of the Leicester Royal Infirmary and The Glenfield Hospital, and we still do today.  

We may be an oldie but we have kept up with new technology. Nowadays anyone on planet Earth can Listen Live to Radio Fox from home via their PC, tablet, phone, internet radio, or laptop.  Also these days we have our catch up service where anyone can Listen Again to your favourite shows and presenters. Whether you wish to Listen Live or Listen Again our entire service is FREE both to the patients and listeners at home on the internet. With no advertisements and enthusiastic volunteer presenters who love to entertain the patients, what’s not to like…
