Isles FM have secured a new broadcasting licence after a public appeal to help the community radio station raise the required £6,000 brought ‘an avalanche’ of donations.

Managing Director David Morrison hailed the contributions of the public and local businesses as ‘phenomenal’ but he stressed 2015 is set to be a year-long fundraising drive as the station requires significant upgrades to mast equipment at Achmore as well as unfinished works in the studio and plans to finally stretch their broadcasting reach from the Butt to Barra.
