ASIAN radio station Radio Paigham has raised £50,000 for a dialysis machine for a hospital in Pakistan.

The Springwood-based community station raised the cash through a series of projects and fundraisers over the year.

The money will pay for the machine, which will help save people with kidney problems, at Allied Hospital, in Faisalabad, Pakistan.

The volunteer-run Radio Paigham returns to the air on 107.9FM on December 1.
