A HUDDERSFIELD man is staging a rock concert to raise money for a charity trek in Peru.
Hamish Morgan, 38, of Netherton, has organised the concert, which will take place on Saturday, March 24, at Colne Valley Leisure Centre in Slaithwaite, starting at 7pm.
Performing will be local rock acts Jagged Edge, Friends of Dave, Icarus and Vital Signs.
All the bands will be giving their time free.
The concert will be Mr Morgan's main fundraising source.
He said: "I'm trekking in Peru to raise money for five children's charities. I have organised this concert as my main fundraising event to ensure I actually get to do the trek.
"All the bands are local to Huddersfield and well-known. Plus, they are all kindly playing free."
Mr Morgan needs to raise £2,800 to pay for the Peru trek.
He plans to spend five days trekking through the Andes mountains in September to raise money for his five charities.
They are Barnado's, Childline, Dreams Come True, Kith and Kids and MedEquip4kids.
He will be walking for 10 hours a day at high altitudes.
But the father-of-two thinks it will be worth it.
He said: "It is one place I have always dreamed of going.
"To go and raise money for children's charities at the same time is just amazing."
Tickets for the gig cost £5 and are available through Huddersfield Tourist Information Office on Albion Street (phone 01484 223200) and Colne Valley Leisure Centre on 01484 222522.
