Bloodstock bring you the chance toWIN a BC RICH GUITAR Signed by world class guitaristsTONI IOMMI (Black Sabbath), HERMAN LI (Dragonforce), JOE SATRIANI YNGWIE MALMSTEEN.
Bloodstock organisers have this year renamed their 3rd stage â€˜The Sophie Lancaster Stageâ€™ in tribute to a young girl who was brutally attacked along with her boyfriend in 2007 while walking through their local park in Bacup, Lancashire. Sophie and her boyfriend were singled out not for anything they had said or done, but because they looked and dressed differently. Unfortunately Sophie later died in hospital following the injuries from this vicious and unprovoked attack.
THE SOPHIE LANCASTER FOUNDATION was set up by Sophieâ€™s family to help provide training to professionals in order to raise awareness of the prejudice and violence faced by people from alternative subcultures. The Foundation will develop and deliver workshops tackling these issues and challenging pre-conceptions as well as offering advice and information to whoever may need it.
To help raise much needed funds for the foundation, Bloodstock are giving you the chance to WIN a BC RICH GUITAR Signed by world class guitarists TONI IOMMI (Black Sabbath), HERMAN LI (Dragonforce), JOE SATRIANI YNGWIE MALMSTEEN.
To be in with a chance to win simply purchase our bespoke S.O.P.H.I.E /BLOODSTOCK WRISTBAND and wear it with pride. For every wristband purchased you will be entered into a prize draw to win the GUITAR.
Bloodstock Organisers are also pleased to announce that crowd favourites 'BEHOLDER', are donating all proceeds to the Sophie Lancaster Foundation from the worldwide release of their single - Never Take Us Down - available from May 11th 2009. This track was written as a direct response to Sophie's murder and is a stark reminder that this was a Hate Crime. With BEHOLDER's wild antics, powerful material and their strong support of the Sophie Campaign, it promises to be a fitting tribute.
