Christmas is coming!

Well the nights are really drawing in now and it's getting colder....which means only one thing, it must be nearly Christmas!

Christmas is a time for eating lots, watching rubbish telly and staying indoors, so all the more reason why you should get in a bit of exercise before the big day and help the CF Trust at the same time.

We are holding lots of Santa Fun Runs all over the country starting next weekend. Everyone who takes part gets a free Santa suit and it really is a great way to get into the festive spirit.

A charity single and album are set to raise vital funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

The project has been masterminded by manager and promoter Lee Robson from Rochdale, who wanted to do something for the charity after meeting one of its young ambassadors who has Cystic Fibrosis, Kelli Gallacher. Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is one of the UK’s most common, life-threatening inherited diseases and claims three lives a week in the UK.

Lee said “I decided I wanted to do a single and album to raise money for the charity and have managed to get unsigned artists and bands from all over the world to take part. All songs on the album have been written by the artists themselves or by writers they work with.”

Full details can be found at

All money raised from the sale of the single and album will help fund research into treating and curing CF. It will also help provide support, advice and appropriate clinical care to the 8,000 babies, children and young adults with Cystic Fibrosis in the UK.
