Christmas FM is 'switching Christmas on in Ireland,' marking the start of the Irish Christmas season by playing round-the-clock Christmas tunes.
Classic Christmas songs as well as newer Christmas hits will be played by volunteer presenters who will be sprinkling lots of festive cheer during the countdown to Christmas Day.
Now in its 15th year, Christmas FM is raising money for several charities and aims to raise over €1 million over the next three years to aid the charities which support vulnerable children affected by poverty, abuse, neglect, bereavement, serious illness, or other traumatic events.
Garvan Rigby, co-founder of Christmas FM said: “We are excited that Christmas FM is switching Christmas on for the 15th year spreading Christmas cheer around Ireland all throughout the festive season. Cadbury, Coca Cola, and An Post have returned as premier FM sponsors again this year.
"Celebrating our 15th year on the airwaves is a significant milestone for us which we wouldn’t have been able to achieve without the BAI and our amazing listeners and volunteers who have supported us and our chosen charities throughout the years.
"This year, we will be raising money for children’s charities Barnardos, Barretstown, Make-A-Wish Ireland, and The Community Foundation for Ireland through The Magic of Christmas initiative."
Christmas FM, which is broadcasting from The Clayton Hotel Liffey Valley, is run each year by a core management team, assisted by many volunteers who donate their time.
