ChildLine Rocks

Hey folks,

Childine Rocks are a fantastic supporter of Home Grown Rock which is why I’ll be hanging my bass up, dusting the cobwebs off my 6 string and joining hundreds of other guitarists in a Guiness World Record attempt to break the following records and raise a shed load of money in the process:

*The Largest Air Guitar Ensemble

*The Largest Music Lesson

*The Largest Electric Guitar Ensemble

*The Largest Ensemble of Guitar Amplifiers

*Plus an attempt to find the FASTEST guitarist in the world! (don’t worry there’s no chance of me getting that one).

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

Not only will I be rocking out but Home Grown Rock will have a stall there so that bands and artists can submit their demos.

Thank you in advance for any donation from £1 upwards as it is all going to a great cause.

Live to Rock’n’Roll!

Well yeah ok it’s a pretty flimsy likening but I was determined to give it a go! So as you may now have realised this blog is about unions and one union in particular.
