The Great Wall of China Walk

Great Fundraising News! Darren has decided to take on the massive task of walking The Great Wall of China this October on aid to raise funds for the charity. The Yorkshire lad, born on the hills should be used to the rough, undulating terrain. But after all those years in the studio, he may need a wee bit of training! On a serious note we all know what a massive task this will be and all those involved with charity give him our 100% support. We hope to hold some exciting fund raising events to help bring the total up to an exciting amount. In the meantime if you would like to sponsor Darren on this great feat please click on our donate button. You can also leave him a message of support, he would love to hear from you!
