As part of their efforts, the band have had a sponsored bike ride and a number of other sponsored events4BR
As part of their efforts, the band have had a sponsored bike ride and a number of other sponsored events and now they have arranged a Soloists Concert to feature major soloists and friends of the band from the Foden’s Richardson Band.
The band told 4BR that they are really looking forward to playing alongside Mark Wilkinson, Richard Poole, Les Neish and Mark Landon although they are not too sure about the long ride in the bike saddles!
