News Desk (02 July, 2015)

The toe-tapping extravaganza will raise money for the London Air Ambulance


A rock’n’roll extravaganza will take place in The Blue, Bermondsey, later this month in aid of the London Air Ambulance.

The toe-tapping fundraiser will be held outside the Old Bank Pub on July 19, beginning at 10am and rocking around the clock until 8pm.

Boasting musical performances, food and drink stands and games, the benefit will offer something for all the family.

Fans of classic rock are in luck, with a number of different acts performing tributes to some of music’s best-loved icons, including Elvis, Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison. The first musical performance will begin at 12.30pm, with others beginning at 2.30pm and 4.30pm.

As well as this there will be a bouncy castle, raffles, a disco, karaoke, a beer tent, Indian food and much more.

All money raised will go towards the London Air Ambulance, the life-saving charity that serves the ten million people who live, work and travel within the M25. They attend five serious incidents per day, providing a level of treatment and reaching areas that ambulances cannot.

They are currently fundraising to buy a second helicopter, which would double the amount of life-saving work the charity would be able to provide.

Mark Davies, Director of Development at London’s Air Ambulance, said: “Our community events are not only a brilliant day out for all of the family, but they also generate vital funds that help us treat critically injured people in London when they urgently need it. Last year we treated 47 patients in Southwark alone, so I’m urging everyone in the Bermondsey area to head on down, have fun, and help us continue to save lives – both in the borough and across London.”

To donate £5, text SAVE to 70800 or make a contribution at the event on July 19.
