Three men discussion

On the 1st October 2010 I will be saddling up for a bike ride from Lands End to London with my colleagues from Roland UK Peter Heath and Simon Griffiths.

Cycling well over 400 miles seems like a slightly mad undertaking for me considering the sum of my previous cycling experience is pootling to the local sweet shop and back as a child.

It is a challenge, but it’s a chance to raise money for the British Heart Foundation and Music For All (MFA) and we get fit and healthy at the same time!

I’d also like to add that the bike ride is not exclusive and some Roland partners and resellers have already signed up to come along for the ride. I hope it can be a chance to bring people from all parts of the music industry together to have some fun, get fit and raise some money for charity – so if you fancy it – get on your bike and join us! To get involved please contact Janine Newton-Howes on 01792 515002 or email

The British Heart Foundation’s vision is a world in which people do not die prematurely of heart disease. Approximately 2.6 million people in the UK are living with coronary heart disease (CHD). You, or someone you know, might be one of them.

We are also supporting Music For All which helps people both young and old to make their own music and benefit from the therapeutic and educational benefits it has.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – it raises more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.
