A Palgrave teenager has completed a marathon radio broadcast for charity.
Max Morgan-Lucas, 14, hosted a 72-hour show in aid of Stillbirths and Neonatal Death Support (SANDS), who helped his mum, Tracey, after she endured the heartache of giving birth to a stillborn child prior to getting pregnant with Max.
The budding DJ - who volunteers for a youth station in Attleborough - wanted to thank the organisation for its hard work and decided to raise funds by doing what he loves most.
Max, who hopes to pursue a career in radio in the future, broadcast the show over the internet at his grandmother’s house using equipment he had purchased himself. The gargantuan set featured a mixture of music, news bulletins, quizzes and call-ins to make it as interactive as possible.
A continuous supply of caffeinated drinks, and some assistance from his younger brother, Harvey, helped the Hartismere School pupil complete the three day stint which raised £179.
Max said: “I am really pleased with how it went. My mum thought the show was great and she enjoyed hearing Harvey read out the weather reports. I was very tired by the end but I am glad I did it.”
