The station was launched on September 20th by a number of WIMS Radio hosts including mental health advocates, celebrity ambassadors and well-known presenters.
I came across this station by accident and was so glad. It was excellent, hearing real life stories from people and all the helpful information around positive mental health and the music played was brilliant. I didn’t think for a second I would end up in there speaking about the Tree Of Hope. Wonderful opportunity and thank you to all. Roll on next year. Im looking forward to it already.
Singing all the way to work this morning. Happy happy happy! Great idea. Great guests! Wish you were on all the time. Keep up the great work 🙂
I’ve so thoroughly enjoyed the week of broadcasting by WIMS. It’s such a pity that you’re not on air all the time, or at the very least have a regular slot or broadcast. Totally feel good factor feeling from listening in all week….. Entertaining, informative and educational, and so very relevant and worthwhile.✌️
Found you on the radio & think it’s a great cause.
What a fantastic feeling it was dropping in and. Seeing the Studio talking to the Team and meeting my hero Dustin supporting my passion. Hope to take part next year God Bless all who took part. Tom Dalton Radio
