Beyond Radio was proud to support the 2023 Lancaster and Morecambe School Aid music festival which raised £6000 for local schools.

Beyond Radio's Greg Lambert joined organiser Jay Blackburn and Rob Ellershaw, landlord of The Exchange pub, on a visit to local schools on Tuesday.

They were there to hand over £1500 to four schools - West End and Morecambe Bay in Morecambe, St Patrick's in Heysham and Skerton St Lukes in Lancaster.
