Talk Radio Europe Telethon in Aid of Cudeca Cancer Hospice

Talk Radio Europe is organizing its annual telethon in aid of the local charity, Cudeca Cancer Hospice, taking place on Friday 10th December and will feature a multitude of guest appearances on the microphone.

The Telethon radio auction, which has run for a number of years, has in the last 4 years alone been instrumental in raising over €200,000 to support Cudeca .

The Telethon radio auction, which runs from 10am to 9pm on the day, has TRE presenters playing music, chatting to visitors and introducing guest artists whilst, at the same time, interacting with the radio listeners who phone in with comments and bids and then finally auctioning items to the highest bidders.

The telethon has enjoyed great success in the past with items donated such as a meal prepared by Anthony Worrall Thompson, a jacket worn by Elton John, dinner with Peter Stringfellow at his club and rounds of golf at the exclusive La Zagaleta Golf Club.
