Hospital Rocks – Acoustic Buskathon

In the run up to this year’s Snowdon Rocks IV (supported by Barclays) event, Mike Peters will be embarking on a marathon acoustic busk-athon during visiting times at North Wales three main hospitals to highlight to the public the fact that all three major North Wales Hospitals have recently joined forces under the new coalition title of The Betsi Cadwallader Trust.

Snowdon Rocks has raised close to £150,000 pounds in charity funding over the last three years (all of which has been donated amongst the two main cancer centres at Ysbyty Gwynedd and Ysbyty Glan Clwyd). In recent months all North Wales Hospitals and Local Health Boards have joined forces under the new title of Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board.

Mike Peters - Buskathon

By inviting members of the public to join Mike on the mountain this year, all proceeds raised will now be able to help North Wales communities right across the principality and with the unification of the service, promising greater hope for all who come into contact with this most terrible disease.

On Thursday July 8th, Mike Peters will perform between 1.30pm and 2.00pm in the main reception of Ysbyty Gwynedd Hospital, Bangor, followed by a dash down the coast for a 3.00pm – 4.00pm performance at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd Hospital in Bodelwyddan, and then on to Wrexham for an evening performance at Ysbyty Maelor Hospital between 7.00pm and 8.00pm.

This years Snowdon Rocks IV (Supported by Barclays), promises to be the best ever in the short history of what has now become an annual event.
