BGR Events are four good friends from Halifax: Andrew Brook, Martin Richards, Tony Tighe and Terry Goodall. The friends put on musical gigs, mostly for their own enjoyment and mostly in Wadsworth Community Centre, Hebden. The four friends of BGR Events donate any surplus funds raised at their events to charity. BGR Events hold around six shows a year to audiences of around 100-130.
This year, the four needed an additional, bigger venue to put on a superb band - Andy Fairweather Low and the Low Riders - and booked Square Chapel Halifax for 20th May. The show sold out to a capacity audience of 240 people, weeks before the event.
In deciding on our donation, one major factor was that the YAA undoubtedly saved the life of Terry's former work colleague, following a serious motorbike crash some three months ago. They thought what better reason to gift the surplus of £1000 to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance!?
