The KUBE 24 Hour Charity Broadcast is a KUBE tradition which started somewhere in the mid-naughties, and has continued ever since. At the end of May of every year when the exam season has concluded, the station embarks on its annual challenge of raising as much money as possible for its chosen charity, as part of the union’s RAG (Raising and Giving) week. Two willing and naive presenters are dared to stay awake for a full twenty-four hours and present a high quality marathon live on air, with a dedicated team of support from other members of the society.
Year after year, the KUBE 24 Hour Charity Broadcast (which has recently been renamed simply to KUBE24) is successful in achieving its goal of raising considerable funds for very important charities.
