TITLE: Mansfield Local man drumming for 24 hours for charity


Local man in Mansfield, Gareth Duffin, band drummer for the singer Gary J Armstrong will be playing the drums in a 24 hour drumathon in his attempts to raise money for charity.


".....I will be drumming on Saturday at Dees Basement Rehearsal Rooms for a true charity where every penny goes towards the welfare of the's recently dawned on me just how punishing this is gonna if everyone could please support me and donate, either for the poor animals or to see me suffer..... ."


With shoulder injuries in the past, Gareth is going to be in a lot of pain, so if this local drummer can pull this off for 24 hours, this will be an amazing feat.


Gareth has raised 760 euros so far on his fundraising charity page, and still hopes to break the 1000 mark, when supporters turn up to see him.



Gareths 24 hour Drumathon starts on the Saturday 4th February 2012 from 6:00am and finishes on the Sunday 5th February 2012, 6:30am at Dee's Rehearsal Rooms, Forest Town, Mansfield, Notts, United Kingdom.



"I will be playing drums for a full 24 hour period,with a 10 minute /food/drink/toilet break at the 6,12 and 18 hour marks"

have just been to see Gareth at Dee's Basement.
He is fighting through the pain and soldiering on...Gareth got cramp in his arm in the first hour buts has played through it. He looks tired but is wired..
The thought of the dogs and all the people who have supported him is driving him on.. big respect to the guy
