Preparations for Big Beat drumathon going well

Organisers of a marathon drumming event in the Island say preparations are going well.

Martin Rigby says support from the community and added sponsorship have helped the Big Beat 2017 enormously, allowing the drummers to focus on fund raising.

The event will feature six percussionists drumming for over 50 hours to raise money for Craig's Heartstrong Foundation.

The 'drumathon', whch takes place on February 24 at the Villa Marina, is being supported by Pokerstars, and local chiropractors Align 4 Life.

Mr Rigby says once the drummers start to play, they can finally relax.
