Charities and organisations we support
We at the Radius are committed to supporting a range of charities and organisations to help improve the local communities that we serve.
Some of the charities we support are Marie Curie; Dementia Forward; Martin House Hospice; Hearing Dogs for the Deaf; Guide Dogs for the Blind Association; Driffield and Wolds food bank; Alcoholics Anonymous; St Leonard’s Hospice; and Macmillan Cancer Support amongst others.
Some of the ways we would do this is by using our very reliable Radius magazine, which has been delivered for over a quarter of a Century, to help publicise these organisations through articles, stories and adverts. We are delighted to be involved with organisations who play such a key role in our communities and beyond.
We know our communities are incredibly supportive of the Radius magazine, and if we can help raise the profile of some of these organisations amongst our local readers, then we are delighted to assist in any way.
