Rockabilly drummer Tim Sharp is going all out to raise money for charity by drumming for eight hours, climbing Mount Snowdon and doing a 50-mile bike ride around Pitsford Reservoir.

Tim, who plays with Daventry band, The Band With No Name, will do the challenges one after another on consecutive days in July.

The cab driver, who works for town cab company GB Taxis, is taking on the challenges in aid of children’s charity the NSPCC.

On Friday, July 24, he will be cycling 50 miles around Pitsford Reservoir, on Saturday, July 25, he will be doing an eight-hour drum marathon in The Bear pub in Northampton and on Sunday, July 26, he will be trekking up and down Mount Snowdon in Wales.

Tim said: “I did an eight-hour drum marathon a few years ago for the same charity and I raised over £900. My target for this challenge is £2,000, which I’m unfortunately a ways off of cracking.

“NSPCC is close to my heart and after working in children’s homes for four years where I saw first hand kids who were damaged through horrible past traumas and abuse. I just want to help out a little. It’s a massive challenge over three days but I’m ready!”
