About Radio Lollipop

Radio Lollipop is an international charity that provides comfort, music and entertainment to children in hospital through volunteers and radio stations which broadcast within hospitals and to other children's wards in their region.

Radio Lollipop's volunteers carry out this mission by visiting the wards, playing with children and operating the radio station. The volunteers chat, make craft, play, dance and sing, have colouring-in competitions, or simply sit and hold a hand if needed.

Radio Lollipop is a unique and exciting play and entertainment service that exists because of the dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers who are committed to delivering a one-on-one service and making a positive difference in the lives of sick children.

The radio station located at Princess Margaret Hospital on the 7th floor (Megazone Area) provides fun and entertainment through music, stories, games and competitions. Children can listen to the service all day every day on Channel 3 on their TV. As this is happening we also have our volunteers out on the wards providing one-on-one play and entertainment at the child's bedside. Children and their families can call 8832 to enter a competition or request their favourite song or come and see us in the Radio Lollipop Studio on Level 7 during studio hours.

Fundraising Program

Radio Lollipop WA is able to operate because of the generosity of the Western Australian public. We are continually looking for fundraising initiatives and ventures to enable us to raise the necessary funds to continue our service to the children who are in hospital. We welcome and encourage new ideas and like to work with potential supporters to develop creative events that raise both the profile of Radio Lollipop and the sponsoring organisation.

Our intention is to work with all different sectors of the Western Australian community to raise the necessary funds.

As we are predominantly Volunteer organisation with only one part-time Charity Coordinator and contract radio Tech servicemen our annual budget is not extensive.

However with our vision to take our brand of service to all children's wards in Australia , we value the support of the community.

Funds raised go towards-

  • Maintaining and developing our radio studio and station programs
  • Ensuring our CD library is current and relevant so children and teenagers can listen to up-to-the-minute music releases when they make a request
  • Continue purchasing prizes and gifts for the children
  • Providing a packet of colouring-in pencils for the children when they come to the hospital approximately 15,000 packets per year
  • Purchasing art materials, toys and games to play with the children
  • Expansion we would like to offer our service to all sick children in Western Australia. Each satellite station with a playroom cost approximately $25,000 to install, plus associated on-going costs.
  • Recruiting and training of our Volunteers
