Battle of the Band Monies Go To Ross Smith

  • Battle of the Bands 2018 cheque presentation
  • Battle of the Bands KKP-159400

At the beginning of the summer term, we were delighted to welcome back Old Boy Jordan Allen to judge Battle of the Bands. His band ‘Jordan Allen’ are currently enjoying great success, having played major festivals such as Tramlines, Dot To Dot, Live At Leeds and Isle of White. They have also had airplay on BBC Radio 6Music and Radio X.  

The four bands who reached the final were Duo (Jean-Paul and Roxanne Asumu), The Ivories, Parallel Oreos and the winners, Gelatinous Flamingo Cupcake. The money raised from Battle of the Bands was given to Ross Smith, a 20 year-old medical student and former pupil of Turton School who was involved in a serious climbing accident, which resulted in his T12 vertebra being fractured and his spinal cord being damaged. The money will go towards providing a wet room at home, together with other personal care and mobility aids that will support him in living as full and independent a life as possible.
