Bands Take To The Stage For Sophie Lancaster Fund (from The Bolton News)
12th December 2007
THEY might seem more likely to scare small children, but four of Bolton's finest hard rock and metal bands are coming together to raise money for charity.
Princess Die, Cupids Revolver, Uncle Rotter and Total Victory will all play a gig at the Dog and Partridge on December 22, to raise money for the Sophie Lancaster fund.
Sophie was killed on August 24 this year while walking home through Stubby Lee Park in Bacup with her boyfriend, Robert Maltby. Police believe that the couple were attacked because they were wearing "goth" clothing.
The fund was set up by her friends and family to "provide an appropriate memorial; a lasting legacy to raise awareness of the injustice perpetrated against Sophie Lancaster and to work towards a more tolerant, less violent society."
Admission to the event is free, although there will be several buckets for donations.
