Barbara will work alongside Mark further developing the already strong relationship with Harrogate District Foundation Trust staff and patients, members and sponsors.

Barbara who has been a volunteer at Harrogate Hospital Radio for two years said ‘’I love being a part of Harrogate Hospital Radio. It was something I always wanted to do, from being a teenager, but life just got in the way. I then got a chance of meeting another presenter at a mutual friend’s party, this gave me the opportunity to apply and it was one of the best things I ever did. The people are fantastic and I’m so proud of the work that we do within the hospital and community.
