Volunteer with Bishop FM

105.9 Bishop FM is a non-profit organisation operated entirely by volunteers, from the management to the presenters. A wide range of roles and responsibilities are open to volunteers.

We’re always looking for new people to join the team in a wide range of roles and make a difference in South Durham.

Take part on air and online

An important role for Bishop FM is to help local groups and organisations get a message across to listeners in South Durham.

Myself, the dedicated volunteers and of course all of the stray and abandoned dogs at the Rescue Centre would like to say a huge THANK YOU for allowing us to share our stories with you and your listeners as well as allowing us to promote our fundraising events during our monthly update including ‘Dog of the Month’!. Your generosity and kindness in inviting our small charity with a BIG heart to feature during your popular, fun & informative Drive Time show has made a huge difference to the lives of the many stray and abandoned dogs at the Deerness Kennels Rescue Centre. Keep up the great work. Straining at the leash with excitement for next months update!
Simon Donnelly, Supporters of Stray and Abandoned Dogs

The Citizens Advice Bureau, Bishop Auckland Neighbourhood Police, Bishop Auckland Town Team and other groups regularly take part in programmes on the station. Contact us to find out more about appearing on Bishop FM.
