Rock Radio's breakfast presenter Kieron Elliot will be reaching an all time high next month as he jumps from a plane from 5000ft, at a speed of around 140mph, totally naked. It's all in aid of their new nominated charity, Nordoff-Robbins.
Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy is the largest music therapy charity in the UK bringing the healing potential of music as therapy to children and adults in need.
GMG's 96.3 Rock Radio will raise funds for the charity’s Scottish centres over the next two years and is set to embark on a number of challenges in the coming months. Earlier in the year Elliott embarked on the Cannonball Run across the USA with MD Billy Anderson raising £4,000 for the charity.
Jay Crawford, programming director for Rock Radio said, “Nordoff-Robbins helps Scottish children who are some of the most vulnerable and who are cut off in some way from the World around them. Magically music manages to break down these barriers.
“Each year it costs around £160,000 to fund the three centres across Scotland. The natural synergy between Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy and 96.3 Rock Radio was an obvious choice when choosing our nominated charity this year and we look forward to working together to raise much needed funds for adults and children across Scotland who can benefit from music therapy”.
Across a two-year period, Rock Radio aims to raise £20,000 for Nordoff-Robbins through the annual Tartan Clef Awards next weekend as well as Rock Jock fundraising events.
