Bridgend’s Hospital Radio elects youngest hospital radio trustee
Connor Morgans has been elected as Programming Co-Ordinator Trustee for Bridgend’s Hospital Radio after volunteering for the station for 4 years.
BHR is based at the Princess of Wales Hospital in Bridgend.
At 22 years old, Connor who is from Bridgend, is the youngest trustee at the station and below the average charity trustee age of 55-64 years old, as stated by the Charity Commission.
He wants to encourage other young people to consider trustee roles within hospital broadcasting and the charity sector too.
Connor says: “I am incredibly honoured to be a part of the board of trustees at Bridgend’s Hospital Radio (BHR). I’ve loved my time presenting at the station but very much look ahead to being involved in decisions and shaping BHR to be the best it can be. I hope I’m not the last and that other young people consider being a trustee for a charity that matters to them.”
Earlier this week at the Hospital Broadcasting Association Awards 2022, Connor won Best Male Presenter and was nominated for Best Specialist Music Programme.
