BEST SPEECH PACKAGE: TINDY C INTERVIEWS
FUNDRAISING TEAM ABOUT A SPECIALIST DEMENTIA ROOM AT
LEICESTER ROYAL INFIRMARY
29TH JULY 2012, RADIO FOX
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!
BEST FEMALE PRESENTER ENTRY: TINDY CHAGGAR
I discuss various topics on my show & invite guests along to share their inspiring stories & expertise; I also go out & about to bring interesting guests direct to the wards & there is a section of my show dedicated to bollywood/bhangra & urban music.
I feel it is very important to embrace people for what they are, & to discuss items that would benefit our audience.
The Cobras piece was done to promote awareness about wheelchair basketball. I had the opportunity to chat to Natasha Davies who represented GB at the Paralympics. Ian Trott (Coach) did come in as a guest at a later stage & informed listeners how they could get involved.
Janet Hills is a tutor with helpful advice — the piece I’ve selected is where I further question her, after she told me that a lot of issues stem from childhood.
I also chat about various topics- serious & lighthearted (such as 50 Shades of Grey); & run competitions (e.g. the tongue twister competition) — I try to encourage as many people as possible to get involved.
I interviewed Raghav this year – an International Urban mainstream artist.
I address a number of issues & have also interviewed others in 2012 including: an Award-Winning Hollistic Therapist; somebody about their Brazillian charity trek experience (for ‘Scope’); the hospital staff about Dementia & a charity event. My outside broadcasts include the start of The Queen’s Jubilee Tour in Leicester & an interview with one of the Leicester Torch Bearers for 2012 Olympics. I also interviewed the ‘Godfather’ of Bhangra this year– Channi Singh (live on the phone) about his recently awarded OBE, plus other music stars.
My basic belief is to try & empathize: I attempt to bring facts of what’s going on- so realism, yet keep a sense of positivity to uplift people who may be feeling rather down.
