24 hour Music Marathon starts Saturday

Category: Music

MARLBOROUGH College is hosting a 24 hour Music Marathon this weekend to raise funds for The Brain Tumour Charity and the John Radcliffe Hospital.

What is it and where?

The event is a 24-hour music marathon in memory of Bobby Cox who, just over two years ago, tragically died of a brain tumour. He was just five years old.  Since then his parents Paul and Harriet have raised over £150,000 through 'Bobby's Fund' for The Brain Tumour Charity and the John Radcliffe Hospital, and this event seeks to further increase that figure in this vital area of medicine and in support of those marvellous organisations.
