    Charity Event to raise money for The Big Issue North & Papyrus (Young Person Suicide Prevention)

    I have decided to drum with 10 bands

    The reason for doing this is from my own personal experiences and people close to me.

    I chose to raise money for The Homeless working in association with The Big Issue North and Mental Health Charity Papyrus as more people suffer with mental health issues, being made homeless and even taking their own lives, which is unacceptable.

    This got me thinking about my own life, and whilst I’m here fit and healthy (touch wood) what can I do to make a difference to someone who is not?!

    1. For this gig, you are going to drum with every band. Are you mad?!! Why did you decide to do this?

    Yes, some people will say I am mad, but I am very excited to do this!!

    So instead of running a marathon, jumping out of plane, swimming the channel, shaving your head or cycling from Manchester to Blackpool, which i might add are still amazing wayd of raising money.

    I wanted to make a difference where I could, in a different way, drumming for as many bands as possible in one day! In my opinion it’s more exciting, more appealing and it allows people, including musicians, to get involved.

    2. For this, when you play with every band, are you doing just one or two songs with them, or is it a full set with each band?

    Yes, the plan is to play with every band and do full sets. The estimated drum time will be about 6 hours, but the difficulty is that it’s playing different styles, some of which will be challenging

    I really look forward to doing this!!!!
