Terry's Thames Adventure!

Martin's road manager, Terry Oliver is planning his next river adventure. This time he will kayak the River Thames in April 2009, starting at Cricklade in Oxfordshire and finishing at Gravesend in Kent - a distance of approximately 182 miles! Terry will be raising money for BBC Children In Need, who run events all year round and the exact start and finish dates and places will be announced in the New Year. If you'd like to know more about Terry's plans then feel free to ask him about them at Martin's gigs when he's staffing the merch desk - or hanging about in the bar! A 'Just Giving' website has been set up for online donations, as it was when Terry kayaked the length of the River Trent in 2007, to raise money for the RNLI. Go to You can also make cash donations to Terry at Martin's gigs if you so wish - many of you were extremely generous when Terry did his last challenge and he was able to raise over £4000.00, so thank you very much for that. We're hoping that Terry can raise even more this time round for a very worthy cause and have a lot of fun doing it as well.
