The group, which has committed stations such as BRMB, Wyvern, Beacon and Mercia to the fund-raising effort, will promote the campaign designed to encourage people to bid for money can't by lots as well as make a contribution to the DEC appeal itself.

Orion Media's Group Programme & Marketing Director, David Lloyd, confirmed that the group was delighted to throw its weight behind the appeal and was looking forward to working with UKRD Group, whose initiative it was, and other stations across the country, to deliver a successful fund raising event.

"This is a great opportunity to provide help and support from the local communities our stations serve to the people of Haiti who are in desperate straights at the moment," said Lloyd.

UKRD's Chief Executive, William Rogers, was delighted to hear of Orion's involvement and welcomed their commitment to the money raising effort. "We continue to receive requests from radio operators to get involved and I am absolutely thrilled with the response," he said.

"We are continuing to get hold of some great lots for auction, the latest of which is a couple of tickets to see Amy MacDonald in Berlin with travel and hotel thrown in," he said.

The auction, which has the official recognition of the DEC is expected to run across three days from Tuesday of next week with over 30 lots up for grabs.
