Christmas is on the way! Join Lee Jukes and the Bridge FM Radio street team as they help Santa to switch on the lights in Bridgend town centre on Saturday 24th November.

There’ll be plenty of festive fun through the day when Santa will parade through Bridgend with his Reindeer from 11am. Boys and girls can then visit Father Christmas in his Grotta at Carnegie House, Wyndham Street through the day.

Lee and the Bridge FM team will be at the stage on Dunraven Place near Barclays Bank from 3.30pm where they will report back live on air at Bridge FM. There’ll be singing and entertainment on stage. Then just after 4pm Santa, Lee and the crowd will countdown and light up Bridgend for Christmas 2018!

Spread the word and help spread the Christmas spirit!

Christmas Lights!


Lee is very proud to announce that he’s agreed to become the Patron of a charity called Community Furniture Aid.

This award-winning Bridgend County Borough based charity is dedicated to furnishing homes for people moving on from homelessness or living in poverty. The team of volunteers works with people from across Bridgend County and surrounding areas. They rely solely on donations of clean household items from the public to make up packs that contain everything that’s needed to start again in a new home.

Lee said “I’ve come across the work that Community Furniture Aid do on a number of occasions. We live in a world where sometimes it can be very difficult to make ends meet and to afford the basics. Sometimes we all need a helping hand. This is where CFA step in with an invaluable service that helps people to start with the basics they need. I urge anyone who can help the team, to get in touch. I’m looking forward to finding out more about the work that they do and promoting the charity in any way that I can”.

The team is based in Pontycymer and available to help every Tuesday to Thursday between 10am and 3pm. If you could benefit from their help or may have a donation, call 0759 731 7338. You can also follow Community Furniture Aid on Facebook by clicking here.

As well as working within the radio industry for 14 years, Lee has gained experience hosting many events in front of a live audience. He’s just as comfortable on a stage or behind a lectern as he is in the studio environment and is available for hire for YOUR event!

Lee’s experience when it comes to hosting live events is extensive. He’s hosted awards ceremonies, fashion shows, conferences, talent competitions, fireworks events, dance events, charity evenings, Race for Life events, choir concerts and much more.
