Our Sales Manager (and part-time rock legend) Larry Roberts will soon be doing his bit for charity once again, when he and his band of business leaders known as 55 Degrees, play Newcastle City Hall, in a benefit concert aimed at raising funds for the Morpeth flood appeal.

On the weekend of 6th and 7th September, Morpeth, the county town of Northumberland was decimated by the worst floods in living memory and around 10,000 people (many with young families) had to be evacuated from their homes and re-housed in temporary accommodation.

Although the floods were over a month ago now, it will still be some time before around 1,000 people will be able to return to their homes, as they were filled with a mixture of flood water and raw sewage and everything in them was basically destroyed.

Besides people’s homes, schools, churches, the leisure centre, the Town Hall and many shops were also affected, some of which remain closed as of today and some of which might never re-open, so the funds raised by this event will be used to help provide much needed support to the community over the coming weeks and months.

Besides Larry’s band 55 Degrees, who play classic rock and pop covers, there will be 3 other North East bands giving their time for free, including highly-acclaimed, up and coming Indie outfit The Mosaics, electric folk group The Honest Johns and heavy rock covers band Straightshooter, so there’s basically something to please everyone.

Tickets are £10 each from the City Hall box office, with all proceeds from the event being donated to the Morpeth Lions flood appeal.
