Congratulations to Air 107.2’s Alan Jay, who has completed a non stop 24 hour house music marathon – all to support a very worthwhile local cause!

Alan Jay says, “After about seven hours, at about 1am, I started to feel very tired and thought that perhaps 24 hours was a bit of an ask, but a couple of cups of tea gave me a new mindset and I focused on the reason I was doing the challenge in the first place! Thinking of the work of EDP Reach was all the motivation I needed.
“Come the end, after 24 hours, I was exhausted both physically and mentally, but very pleased that I had made it. EDP Reach have been so supportive of my own recovery journey, so I wanted to give something back to them by doing this challenge and raising some cash in the process. So please, there’s still time to donate!”
