Following another rock ‘n’ roll cycle ride from Alexandra Palace in London to Download Festival, Donington, in June and a huge fundraising eBay auction in September, we are really excited to announce that a combined total of £73,000 was raised to split between their three nominated charities - over £24,300 of which has been donated to Teenage Cancer Trust.

Once again the cycle ride saw some of metal’s biggest fans and industry professionals cycle the 161 miles from Ally Pally to Download Festival in 48 hours, raising money for Teenage Cancer Trust, Nordoff Robbins and Childline. This was followed by Team Rock’s Monster Rock Auction, featuring some incredible once-in-a-lifetime items up for grabs, including a guitar signed by Metallica (!), an Orange amp signed by the likes of Opeth, Steel Panther and Chris Jericho and an Aerosmith platinum presentation disc to name a few.
