Tindy C – Best Speech Package Entry for HBA Awards 2013.



I interviewed Bally Virdee (member of the SERCO security team at LRI) and Billy Hamnett (specialist dementia nurse) about dementia, including symptoms, the wider effects of the disease and problems that can arise within the A & E department.
Due to the ageing population this is a very relevant topic, which affects many people. The LRI have decided to positively tackle issues which may arise within the hospital, as the security team are often called to help calm down patients who are suffering from dementia. These patients can become extremely confused and distressed.
Therefore the security team and others have decided to do a charity event to raise money for a much needed facility within the A & E department (specialist dementia room).
I spoke to them about their personal experiences, how the room will help, and the charity event (Hadrian’s Wall challenge and other fundraising events). The aim of this interview was to promote awareness and to help raise funds for this much needed facility.

This interview is a 5 minute extract and did help the team to exceed their target!


About Tindy C

Hi, I'm Tindy C and through a substantial change in my personal circumstances I have found expression through radio and the written word invaluable. I am a lawyer by profession, but am now metamorphosing, as I realize that my pursuit of happiness lies not within the confines of a ‘stuffy’ job, but by having the freedom and encouragement to be creative. I have since 2006 been working at Radio Fox, based at the Leicester Royal Infirmary. This year at the Hospital Broadcasting Association (HBA) Awards, my coverage of the Leicester Belgrave Mela 2011 won the Bronze Award in the Special Event Category. I was also honoured to be shortlisted – this year & last year in the Best Female Presenter category. This is a National Awards Ceremony covering the UK. My show at Radio Fox. ‘The Tindy C Show’ has 2 sections- ‘Talk’ & ‘Desi-Fever’. In Talk, I interview various people (including health care professionals, therapists, charities, other organisations & other inspirational people. I also discuss news items. In Desi-Fever, I bring listeners the very best in all things Bhangra & Bollywood – including interviews with the stars, great music, gossip, reviews (film, theatre, books) plus much more. I have also resumed my passion of writing and within my Blog you will find evidence of my random ‘rants and raves’, alongside excerpts from the Radio.
