Hox Rocks for Christmas

Hox Rocks for Christmas

10 December 2012

Hox Wine Bar in Sadlergate, Derby have joined forces with the Cathedral Quarter businesses and some of the top local musical talent to make it a special Christmas for two charities, Meningitis Research Foundation and TreeTops Hospice.

Hox will host a weekend of fund raising events on behalf of both organizations over the weekend of 14, 15, and 16 December, which will be called Hox Rocks for Christmas.

The weekend will open on Friday 14 Dec with the LaF Christmas Party night, featuring the music of top local band LaF.  Saturday will feature street entertainment down Sadlergate, bucket collections by both charities and a visit from Santa Claus. Sunday sees a 12 hour music marathon featuring some of the best local musicians and entertainers.

A raffle featuring prizes donated by businesses in the Cathedral Quarter will run throughout the weekend.

MRF Ambassador in the East Midlands Tracey Marinelli will be on hand throughout the weekend to answer questions and raise awareness of meningitis and septicaemia.

Thanks to the Hox Wine Bar for supporting us through this event.
