Childline Rocks - Hands Across The Water

.

In July Planet Rock "joined" members of THUNDER and THE UNION on the road for the year's most important road trip - the CHILDINE ROCKS HANDS ACROSS THE WATER bike ride that saw a group of around 25 bike enthusiasts hit the road to cover nearly 900 miles in six days to raise money for the fantastic CHILDLINE ROCKS charity.

Danny, Ben and Luke from Thunder along with Luke's Union bandmate Peter were joined by a ragtag bunch of writers, fans and bikers for the trek through North America - travelling from Cranbrook (British Columbia) to Montana & then onto Idaho. Along the way they played impromptu gigs and sessions, recorded the trip and sending updates back to Planet Rock every day so that we could follow their amazing journey. The trip cultminated in a huge show at the Sun Pavillion in Ketchum where the rest of the reunited Thunder turned up for a very special, and very emotional show.

The ride might be over but you can still give some money to the charity below.

As an extra incentive to give up your loot, Thunder will give away the audio recordings made along the way to everyone who donates £10 or more, and £25+ will get you the audio and video clips from the trip.

You can DONATE to the charity by clicking on the link below (or anywhere that says CHILDLINE ROCKS)
