Charity Gig for Bolton Hospice

Tuesday, 20 October 2009

Bolton School Sixth Form pupils have raised £1,500 for Bolton Hospice by holding a Charity gig.

Pupils Jordan Harrison-Twist, a drummer, and Rachael Moulton, President of the Girls' Division Junior Rotary 'Interact', orgainised the gig at the Soundhouse in Bolton to support the Hospice. The charity is particularly close to their hearts as staff at the Hospice cared for Jordan's neighbour Mark Bridges when he was diagnosed with terminal cancer.

The night was a huge success as Jordan's Band 'Battleship Lime' together with another Bolton School band 'Strangeways' and a band from Winstanley College 'No Hostage Policy' performed to over 250 fans. Members of the Rotary Club of Bolton Lever were on hand to help Rachael make sure everything ran smoothly on the night.

One of Mark's great passions was music, and I felt it was a suitable way to show our respect for Mark and at the same time recognise the care Mark and other cancer sufferers receive at Bolton Hospice

The Hospice were overwhelmed by the efforts of the pupils, and praised them for their initiative.

It is such an inspiration to see these young people taking it upon themselves to organise an event like this to raise money for other people in a fun way. They really are a credit to the school
