Book Pixies Visit Queen Mary's and Radio St Helier

A group of twelve students came to visit Radio St Helier after visiting the children’s ward at Queen Mary’s Hospital.

 
A group of twelve students came to visit Radio St Helier after visiting the children’s ward at Queen Mary’s Hospital.
As part of CHSG Book Pixies project, whose motto is ‘Take me, Read me, Leave me’, the student volunteers had been dropping books into the wards and various locations on route to the hospital. Book Pixies want everyone to read so even though the project is aimed at getting children reading, the Pixies will also be dropping books for older readers. You can find clues to where and when book drops will be happening on Carshalton High School for Girls’ LRC social media pages on Twitter and Instagram and also here on the school's website and social media.
 
The students were invited into St Helier Hospital Radio to talk about how CHSG Book Pixies got started and what the future plans are.
 
Radio St Helier started on 6th June 1970 and is a volunteer run project with live broadcasts going out every day. The volunteers visit the wards before their show to talk to the patients about what music they like.
 
Just this year we have begun streaming our live shows out via our website www.radiosthelier.co.uk  to continue supporting patients as they recover at home.
We are looking forward to hearing more about CHSG Book Pixies and their work in the local community.
