Childline Rocks presents England Rocks – Hands Across The Water

May 14, 2011

Entitled England Rocks- Hands Across the Water, this summer’s ChildLine Rocks event will raise money for ChildLine by hosting a six day charity motorbike ride beginning in Cranbrook, BC in Canada and finishing in Ketchum, Idaho in the USA. Profits from the minimum pledged by each UK, US & Canadian rider (up to 50) embarking on this adventure are guaranteed to go straight to the charity.

In return for this generous contribution, enthusiasts will have the opportunity to ride iconic Harley Davidson motorbikes across some of the most breathtaking scenery, in the company of some extraordinary people. For instance, they will have Andy McNab DCM MM (a ChildLine Rocks ambassador, Patron of The Force Select Foundation & Help the Heroes, former SAS servicemen and bestselling author), the founder of March for Honour, Royal Marine Ram Patten, and rock band Thunder for company; joined by colleagues, they will be riding to raise money for the ForceSelect Foundation. This truly will be the trip of a lifetime….

The trip will be made all the more memorable by a fundraising sing-a-long each night. Locals will be cordially invited to join in the fun and raise some extra cash!

The full trip itinerary and fundraising targets are available on www.childlinerocks.co.uk. Each rider will be expected to cover their flight, hotel, motorcycle and other costs + raise a minimum of £1000 for ChildLine. England Rocks-Hands across the Water! hopes to raise a minimum of £50000 for ChildLine.

The whole event will culminate in a memorable rock concert on July 16 2011 at the Sun Valley Pavilion, Ketchum, Idaho. A major name headliner is to be announced but the concert will feature British acts, including The Union, winners of Classic Rock Awards’ Best New Breakthrough Band 2010 – a wonderful way to mark the end of a truly unique and worthwhile road trip.
