A CHICHESTER student raised more than £355 after spinning the discs for a 24-hour radio challenge in aid of the cancer charity Macmillan.

Jamie Dyer, 21, organised the challenge in July after he was inspired by Radio 1 DJ Chris Moyles who held a similar event.

The Chichester University student was featured in the Observer in the run-up to the charity fundrasier.

“It was a worthy effort by all involved,” said Jamie, who is a DJ for online radio station Real Hit Radio.

“One of the donations came from one of the Observer readers, who contacted me directly, donating her vinyl collection to me and £5 towards the event, which I was very grateful for.

“We had some community support as well, from Andy’s Fish Bar, who donated all the food for the event and set up a collection box in his shop for customers to donate.
