A new member of NNBC’s advisory board is poised to develop the radio station’s work with volunteers and the community.
Dawn Cummings, CEO of Voluntary Impact Northamptonshire, will give voluntary and community organisations a chance to highlight and develop what they are doing with the support of the town’s newest radio station. She will also provide invaluable support and advice for NNBC, which is itself run by a team of dedicated volunteer broadcasters and producers.
Dawn said: “NNBC offers a unique opportunity for the voluntary and community sector in Northampton to give a voice to their communities and the issues they face. It also provides a platform to shout about the best of Northampton; from our culture and heritage to the work of our community champions and unsung heroes.
“I look forward to guiding NNBC to ensure that the community is paramount in its programming and service provision.”
Shelly Stevenson, chair of the NNBC advisory board, said: “The community is central to the purpose of NNBC and ensuring that we represent the communities of Northampton is a vital role for the advisory board.
“The addition of Dawn as a community member of our board is a powerful statement of our intent to ensure we fulfil this obligation.”
Kate Williams, Deputy Dean of the University of Northampton’s Faculty of Arts, Science and Technology, said: “A strong community focused advisory board is essential if NNBC is to achieve its vision. Dawn’s addition to the board and the connection with VIN is an important step in delivering this vision.”
