Generous donations from community groups have given community radio station 103.9 Seymour FM a boost over the past few months.

The most recent was a $500 donation from the Seymour Dance Club.

The money was raised through the club’s charity dance at the end of 2021, as its committee decided to support community radio.

The Rotary Club of Seymour donated $1,000 to the grateful volunteer radio station, which said the donations were vital so it could continue to do the work it did.

The Rotary Club of Seymour, Seymour FM and Seymour Dance Club are all eager to welcome new members.

When presenting her donation to Seymour FM, the community radio station and dance club highlighted their belief in the benefits of movement in music.

Winter was the best time to get out of the house, get involved, socialize and tap your feet, said dance club secretary Lois McMaster.

The Seymour Dance Club holds practice nights every Tuesday night and dances the third and fourth Saturdays of each month.

“We all know how important it is to stay active and stay social, no matter your age or ability,” said 103.9 Seymour FM President Ruth Yeatman.

Seymour FM said it would use the donation for its upcoming studio move.

The station will also support the Victorian Seniors Festival again in 2022 and will present a range of programs at 8.30am every Tuesday, ranging from spoken word and plays to specialist music shows and interviews.

This year, the senior festival celebrates its 40th anniversary and the theme is “Takin’ it Easy”.
