Tim Halliday raises money for our Rock School

Great news!

Tim Halliday works as a performance technician in the Faculty of Arts, Science and Technology at the University of Northampton. With the support from Northampton’s hotly-tipped OhBoy!, and Brighton three-piece Broadbay, the university has organized a benefit concert for our Rock School, and the foremost thanks goes to Tim Halliday, who initiated the event.

The concert was held in Northampton’s Picturedrome venue on 22nd of October, and has achieved to raise 1,245 pounds for Mitrovica Rock School. Part of it will be spent on a microKorg keyboard to be used by both branches, and the rest will serve for organizing inter-ethnic workshops.

Tim’s involvement with the rock school started when he visited Kosovo in order to document a University of Northampton initiative being run for young people here.

He has expressed how proud he is of Northampton for making this event a great success, saying:

I was humbled and overwhelmed by the support for the fundraiser on Saturday. The total raised far exceeded my expectations and will have a lasting impact for the Mitrovica Rock School. Northampton did itself (and me) proud. (source: http://www.northampton.ac.uk/news/gig-goers-get-behind-benefit-gig-for-kosovan-rock-school/)

Huge thanks to Tim and Northampton, as well as everyone else who participated in this benefit!
