    Weʼve raised £6,258 to help two important causes hit by Covid-19. The Cheltenham Playhouse Theatre and Help Musicians UK (formerly Musicians Benevolent Fund)

    Funded on Friday, 16th October 2020

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    We all know how hard Covid-19 has hit everyone, and I am keenly aware that we are all being asked to lend our financial support to many, many very worthwhile causes.

    There are two causes very close to my heart which I am raising funds for and I would humbly like to ask for your support.

    Since March, just like pretty much all touring musicians and performers I have not been able to work and so I am keenly aware of the difficulties that theatres and venues are suffering and similarly of the many, many musicians who are in dire financial trouble.

    Therefore I am hosting a 24 hour rocknrollathon at the Cheltenham Playhouse Theatre starting at 10 a.m. Wednesday 16 September to raise funds for both the Cheltenham Playhouse and Help Musicians UK (formerly the Musicians Benevolent Fund).

    My goal is to raise £10,000 to be split evenly between the two causes and to do this I shall be inviting my rock n roll musician friends to join me on the Playhouse stage to keep the music going for 24 hours. We plan to film and stream the performance and there will be the opportunity for small numbers to join us in the theatre and watch live (socially distanced of course).

    If you would like to support and sponsor me in this event I would be so appreciative ....... but support doesn't have to be financial, so if you can help on the day (or night) then that would be great too!

      Dear All Thank you so very much for your support with this event and to these causes. I will be closing this page next Wednesday but wanted you to know that along with ticket sales and cheques going directly to the charities, we are very much nearing our goal. Without you this could not have been done. Thank you, and please keep supporting live music and the venues that promote it. Very best wishes Peter

      Missed it - but well done; we love the Playhouse and don't think it should be treated as the "poor relation" of the Everyman; it's unique and special - most of all for long-standing "Cheltenhamites".
