Richard Retires

One of Radio Clatterbridge's most prolific request collectors has hung up his ward binder for the very last time.

Richard Calvert has been a familiar face on the wards at The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre over his two spells with the station.

Richard returned to us in Spring 2009 and has been collecting requests ever since, both on Thursdays and, more recently, on Saturdays.

Members of the Saturday morning team past and present met up for a farewell lunch to wish him well at The Three Stags - an approprate venue as he was the manager there in the 1980s!

We thank him for his dedication and wish him all the best.
