Eastbourne Youth Radio (EYR) is looking ahead to its 15th annual broadcast from the studios at Sussex Downs College in the autumn - and is looking for new sponsors.

Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne has already promised to be lead partner, with a special focus on Anti-Bullying Week, for the broadcasts between November 18 and 20. Students from more than 25 schools and other youth groups are expected to take part, supported by more than 40 business and community organisations which will take an active role in their sponsored programme. These already include East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service, University of Brighton, Square One Financial Planning, Let’s Do Business and Firebrand.

Dr Steven Goss-Turner, Chair of Eastbourne EBP, said, “The partnership between education and the business community is often characterised by good intentions on both sides but a lack of tangible outcomes. EYR is a striking example of a project which provides the medium for achieving mutually beneficial outcomes. This is recognised by its ‘High Impact’ award but more significantly by the enthusiasm and the learning generated by the collaboration of students, teachers and business leaders.”

EYR is keen to engage more business and community partners in 2015. To find out more contact Tim Sorensen on 07890 388624 or email tim@sorenlearningsolutions.co.uk
