The BCfm 10 hour radiothon was hailed as a massive success by organisers as the Brazil2Bristol campaign moved closer to its £5000 target. at the time of writing the campaign had just exceeded £4000 with ebay auctions and other fundraising still going on. Harriet Robinson who has headed the campaign said "The reaction from our listners has been incredible and local business have been amazing too, It's really been an insiring project that has exceeded our expectations" BCfm Chief Executive Patrick Hart said "BCfm are blessed with some really talented and selfess individuals and Harriet is just one of those people who sacrifices so much to make things happen, July is going to be an amazing month for Bristol's leading community radio station that caters for such a diverse audience in our city, it's about delivering on our promises and I can't wait to show these young people around our amazing city"
The Bristol2Brazil project is bringing six young people who have never travelled outside their own city (just outside Rio ) to Bristol, Leeds and London to perform with their guitars and meet other young people with an aim of cultural exchanges taking place.
