SPACE – AID raises over £5,000

On January 3rd 2013, at Preston Grasshoppers, some of Lancashire’s top musicians came together for SPACE-AID, 2 concerts in 1 day, with The Houghton Weavers headlining the afternoon concert and Stephen Bayliss and The Rockits headlining the evening show.

Healthy ticket sales plus generous raffle prizes and superb bids on some interesting auction lots added up to over £5,000 with money still coming in.

S.O.S. want to say a huge thank you to everyone who made it such a wonderful event – not just the acts – but our team of ticket sellers, poster putter-uppers, PA setter-uppers and bucket shakers….THANK YOU ALL!!

But please remember – there is still much more to be done to help SPACE, so please support upcoming events and fund-raising initiatives.


Ho! Ho! Who??

Guess which Preston North End player is hiding under Santa’s beard….(no prizes though…its just for fun!)

Ross McWilliam from the S.O.S. committee went to PNE this week to inject a little bit of  S.P.A.C.E. awareness into the lads…and let them know about some of the upcoming events such as the Santa Cycle on the Guild Wheel (Dec 16th), and Onesie Day (Dec 18th).
