It’s usually thought of as the day of rest but this Sunday there won’t be much relaxation in store for charity champion Rob Lord.
The Gedling man plans to pound the streets of Nottingham at the Robin Hood Mini-Marathon in the morning before taking to the stage in the afternoon for a charity concert with his local band No! Disco – all in aid of local cancer centre Maggies.
Rob will be joined on the mini-marathon by friend Alex O’Chrombel who is also helping raise money for the cause.
The afternoon charity gig is being held at The Doghouse on Carlton Hill. Doors open at 3pm and the line-up also includes local artist Steve McGill and covers band Freddie. Tickets for the event are £5 – with all proceeds going to Maggies.
Rob said: “It’s a really good line up playing The Doghouse. We’ve already raised £500 for Maggies and the more people that come to the show, the more money we’ll raise for the charity.”
“A friend of mine Alex Snowden recommended this cause and he has also already raised over £700. Let’s hope we can raise even more on Sunday.”
