Hi RS - thanks for the good wishes - we like Mello Mello - played there a month or so back. Really looking forward to the event both the running and the music - I am looking to do 3 x 5k each day - others are doing longer stretches, just hope that the weather will be good.
It's been a long time since I posted. Basically the plan is that members of the band Merry Hell (please look us up on our website or facebook) will be completing what we are calling Band On A Run over the last weekend in April. Members of the band, crew and fans/friends of theband will be running the length of the Leeds-Liverpool canal over the weekend in order to raise money for and awareness of The Stroke Assocaition - but with there is a twist or two. Because we are a band, we are starting the project on teh fridaynight with a gig at Hebden Bridge Trades Club (it's as near to Leeds as we could get) and finishing the run on Sunday with a gig at Mello Mello in Liverpool. We will start running on the Saturday morning, running in relays - each according tot heir ability etc BUT and here's the other twist, we are looking to stop off at pubs along the canal bank and play busking gigs as we go. 5 members of the band will be putting in running shiftsbut the plan is that crew and friends will run the legs of the relay while the band are doing short 15-20 minute setsat the canal-side pubs. Anyone interested in doing a relay leg - at least 5k appreciated then please get in touch through thewebsite or facebook. Look forward to hearing from you. Best wishes, Damian: Date 27-29 April
