Rock royalty Thin Lizzy do their bit for Sport Relief 2012
World famous rock band Thin Lizzy rocked St David’s Hall last night with their new show-stopping performance of ‘The Boys are Back’ tour whilst also doing their bit for Sport Relief 2012. Lead singer Ricky Warwick, bassist Marco Mendoza, guitarist Damon Johnson and Darren Wharton on keyboards donned their Sport Relief t-shirts to show their support of the campaign and to encourage the people of Cardiff to enter the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile on Sunday 25th March.
The legendary rockers who exploded ‘Live and Dangerous’ onto the scene over 20 years ago, are back with an all-new, star-studded line up, as well as original members Brian Downey and Scott Gorham, and are taking their music to a whole new generation of music fans in South Wales. Despite the hard rock legends’ busy schedule, the band couldn’t wait to get involved with this year’s Sport Relief campaign.
Ricky Warwick, lead singer of Thin Lizzy is encouraging the public to get involved too: “Come on Cardiff! Why don’t you show your support for Sport Relief and enter the Cardiff Mile on March 25th and help transform thousands of lives here in Cardiff, across the UK and in the world’s poorest countries. You can ‘do anything you want to’ – run, dance, walk or rock out along the route! Visit www.sportrelief.com to sign up and get sponsored.”
This year, over one million people are expected to pull up their socks and take part in the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile in order to raise some serious cash for vulnerable people right here in Cardiff, across the UK and in the world’s poorest countries.
Join thousands of people in beautiful Cardiff Bay, with a route that takes in the Roald Dahl Plass, the Wales Millennium Centre and the Pierhead building as well as being packed full of entertainment and friendly faces (some famous) to cheer you on. Last time, more than 4000 people took part in the Cardiff Mile, and the people of Wales have raised and donated over £1 million. Since then, more than £1.9 million has been spent on local projects in Wales. Enter the Cardiff Mile by visiting www.sportreleif.com.
