Who would have thought it? A few short discussions in an Internet forum at the start of the month would result in an amazing fund raising event.

It was all started by Paul Gray of the 9 Lives Classic Rock Band in a post to the Local Music Forum on Peterborough Community Website - www.peterborough.net. It was 11pm on 7th January when Paul called for local bands to get together for a big fund raising effort.

Mark Ringer, well known for organising many local music events over the years, responded to the call and within days the Broadway Theatre had been offered as the venue.

Most important of all, the bands saw the forum thread and began to offer their services. So the line-up evolved, a name had been established, several sponsors were found and much of it achieved through the power of the Internet.

Website content editor, Jenny Mogford said: “The Local Music forum has seen many a gig planned, transport arranged, equipment loaned and music discussed since it first went live in September 2000. So it’s great to see it put to further good use.”

ROCK RELIEF will take place at the Broadway Theatre on Sunday 6th February 2005. Sponsors so far are the Broadway Theatre, Lite FM, T2 Studios, Lee Mason and of course Peterborough Community Website.

If you would like more information, or would like to be involved please contact the event organiser, Mark Ringer on 01733 346529.
