Love the dulcet tones of former Strictly Come Dancing’s head judge and proud Demelza Hospice ambassador, Len Goodman? Well, pin back your ears and listen out for Len on Heart FM!

Len, who has been a Vice President of Demelza for over 10 years, has generously donated his time to record three radio adverts, encouraging supporters to donatevolunteer their time or sign up to fundraising events once the country begins to open up again following lockdown number three!

Len is not alone is his support for this project. One of Demelza’s key corporate partners, Swale Heating, has kindly donated air time so the advert can run at a reduced cost to the charity. Based in Kent, Swale Heating have generously supported Demelza since 2004 and, in fact, gifted the charity air time to run the very first Demelza TV ad in 2017.

Matthew Edwards, CEO of Swale Heating said: “Supporting Demelza Hospice Care for Children is an important part of our brand identity in helping our local communities. At Swale Heating we know the services Demelza offer are vital to many families, more so now than ever, which is why we continue to promote Demelza’s services and are offering them some of our marketing airtime on the radio. We know the impact of advertising on the radio and hope that our donation of airtime will help more people be aware of the amazing services Demelza offer.”

Hayley Richardson, Deputy Director of Fundraising at Demelza said: “A huge thanks goes out to both Len and Swale Heating for their generous contribution to this initiative. 2020 was a particularly challenging year for both our families and for fundraising so we’re delighted to go in to 2021, despite another lockdown, with the opportunity to reach a wider audience, recruit volunteers and boost our income”.

And the final word goes to the lovely Len: “It’s a privilege to be able to support Demelza in any way I can – they are an incredible bunch of people and the service they provide to families is second to none. Please check out the ads and donate, or sign up as a volunteer or to an event – it’ll be a 10 from Len for you!”
