Hi Everyone

Just to keep you all updated. The Big Record event is still going ahead on the 8th of January at The Arndale centre in Manchester. A few people have emailed me asking if it is off as we have had some big problems, however, it is not. The problems have been sorted out and everything is definatly going ahead as planned.

The full plan for the day is at: http://www.thebigrecord.com

Anyone who wants to help can do so in a variety of ways.

1) Just by turning up on the day and cheering me on!
2) By making a donation to the charity, again see the link above for details. You can send cheques, or use paypal.
3) By promoting the event at other sites, telling your friends and generally letting people know.
4) By sending something for the charity auction. Old props and memorabilia you don't need anymore for instance?

We have confirmed T-Shirts for sale on the day, and on the internet after the event. A printing company kindly donated 30 at no cost to us so a limited number will be available soon.

If anyone is interested I will be having an aftershow party at Rockworld in Manchester on the night of the 8th (as long as I haven't been carted off to hospital that is Smile ). If you are coming on the day and fancy a night of rock, punk and drinking (God knows I need too) let me know and I will get your name on the guest list.

Cheers everyone.

Ace.. I'm hoping to make it across, owing to work I may only be able to catch the stilt escape at the end, but definitely looking forward to seeing that. Throw in the night of punk rock and I am there! Smile

Hi Guys

Due to the terrible events of the last week, The Big Record will now be donating all the money raised to The Disasters Emergency Commission. This is the umbrella organisation which has been created to distribute funds to all of the big Tsunami relief efforts, including most of the major international charities. More info can be found at:

http://www.dec.org.uk

I will be videoing the event Don.

Cheers

Hi everyone

Thanks again for all your support. Things are going a little smoother that they were now. Just a couple of wrinkles to iron out!

I wonder if I can twist a few peoples arms here. We DESPERATELY need donations of both money, and items for the charity auction, in order for the event to be a success. Anyone who has seen even a couple of minutes of news recently will understand just how vital it is that huge amounts of help reaches the millions in the affected regions. To put this in perspective. The charity I am raising the money for is Save The Children via the Disasters Emergency Commission. One of their main projects right now is building new homes for surviving families. Without which they might end up on the list of casualties, instead of the list of survivors. The houses they can build themselves, but the materials to do so cost £50, not a lot for a house, but it might as well be millions to people that have lost everything. So, if everything went wrong, and the event raises just £500, that's still enough to house 50 people. Or to pay for thousands of gallons of water to be purified, or to... and so I could go on... in short, enough to actually save lives.

I've said my bit. Thanks for reading this far.

Cheers

David
