CoramJam fundraising gig is a big hit

Published: Wednesday 22nd January 2014

Music fans in Derby rocked into the night with an evening of live bands organised by four dedicated Coram supporters

Band playingRob Lindsay, Owen Johns, Iain Smith and James Burrows who work for construction firm and Coram corporate partner, Balfour Beatty, raised £1,584 by putting on CoramJam, which attracted over 180 music lovers.

This total was generously matched by Balfour Beatty, bringing the overall figure to £3,168.

Acts included acoustic duo Crimson Kicks, local indie rock group 5 Days of November (pictured) and Nottingham singer songwriter Georgie Rose.

Organiser Robert Lindsey said the evening exceeded their expectations: “The calls and texts have been rolling in all day saying what a fantastic time everyone had last night - ‘the best night we've had in a very long time’ is a particular favourite of mine!”

The Balfour Beatty colleagues will run as ‘Team Sole Destroyer’ in the Virgin London Marathon 2014, raising funds for Coram. To support the team, please visit their fundraising page here.
