Radio Lollipop is an international charity which brings music and creative activities into hospital for children all over the world.

Radio Lollipop volunteers work with children in hospital to help them express themselves through fun and interactive activities, stories and games. Creative activities often link with a musical theme and prizes are available to winners of radio competitions.

The radio studio is in a glass box, the walls of which will gradually be filled with sand from beaches around the world as well as sea shells, coins and lollipops – reflecting the beach theme of the floor.

The prokject has been suppported by Lehman Brothers Foundation Europe and Guy's and St Thomas' Charity.

Alesha Dixon has promised to return to the Evelina Children's Hospital to premiere her forthcoming single on Radio Lollipop.
