Rocking for charity in Scotland

Rock Radio in Scotland has recently raised £10,000 for charity, and was joined by Alan Thornton and Joolz from GUN along with Toby Jepson to hand over the cheque.

The station’s nominated charity partner is Nordoff-Robbins Scotland, for whom a sell out charity birthday bash was held in January.

The gig included performances by Logan, the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, Thunder, GUN with Toby Jepson on lead vocals and many more, watched by over 700 fans.

The night concluded with a special guest appearance by singer of the anthem Caledonia, Frankie Miller who has benefited directly from Nordoff-Robbins therapy after suffering a brain haemorrhage in 1994.

Ciaran O’Toole, station manager for Rock Radio and organiser of the charity gig said, “The Rock Radio team were delighted to present Nordoff-Robbins Scotland a cheque for £10,000 as part of monies raised from its birthday bash. The station will be supporting Nordoff-Robbins through 2008 and will be raising more money to support this great charity organisation in Scotland. Since GUN happily presented the cheque, many more Scottish musicians have pledged support for Nordoff-Robbins and we hope to all work together to make a difference”.

Rock Radio's sister station in Manchester launched on May 5th.
