Love Hope Strength Foundation (http://lovehopestrength.org/)
Love Hope Strength Foundation provides an international bone marrow register. They run music events all over the world where people at the event can give a cheek swab and go onto their international bone marrow donor register.
“Saving Lives – One Concert at a time”.
This is the first time NZ has hosted a Love Hope Strength event and Country music is on the menu with guests including Melissa Partridge, The Eastern and Valley Bluegrass.
Lydia Franklin is currently cycling the length of NZ to raise awareness and funds for this international charity. Her ride began on 4th Feb in Kaitaia and will finish in Bluff on the 27th Feb. At this point she will be picked up and driven to Dunedin for the gig where we can celebrate with her, her amazing ride and commitment to Love Hope Strength. Below is a link to her blog.
Last year Lydia did the same thing in the USA – Route 66.
The concert is on the 27th February at Coronation Hall in Dunedin.
