Welcome to Radio Cracker, Ballymena's Only Charity Radio Station

Radio Cracker did not broadcast live shows on FM radio in 2020 due to Covid-19 Social Distancing restricitons.

However we did broadcast new pre-recorded shows online, hosted by some of our presenters, and you can listen to these all year round.

  • Mission Africa - We are donating £2,000 to Mission Africa to help supply food, soap and hand sanitizer to those who need it most.
  • Kids 4 School - We are donating £1,000to supply as many homes as possible with a ‘love gift’ containing masks, gloves, hand gel, soap and a small Swahili Bible.
  • Second Sight - We are donating £3,000 to Second Sight to help fund the PPE for their hospitals so that the sight-giving operations can continue.
  • Bread for Kenya - We are donating £1,500 to BREAD to supply 10 water tanks.
  • EMMS International - We are donating £4,000 to EMMS for training equipment and an Oxygen concentrator to help the health workers provide the best care for patients who are very ill with Covid-19.
  • E3 Initiative - We are donating £2,000 towards supplying masks to children who are going back to school at the end of January and their grandmothers who are very vulnerable.

We thank everyone for their continued support in these challenging times.

Stay Safe & we hope to be back on air in 2021.
