Stay At Home NHS Fundraiser – 8hr LIVE DJ Challenge

“21 Brighton DJs took on the Stay At Home 8hr DJ Challenge. Collectively spinning for 172 hrs LIVE on Facebook. Help double our NHS gift with a share or a donation”

Thanks to Toby Douthwaite for putting together this challenge. It was pleasure to take part and I hope everyone reading this post feels inspired to contact friends & family in the NHS, come up with their own fundraiser or, if you can, support this one with a share, like or donation – To conclude Ill hand the mic over to Toby…

“When I started this #8hourdjchallenge I set a target of £1,500 and genuinely thought it was too ambitious. My expectations were 5-6 DJ’s and £600/700.

The outcome…21 DJ’s, 5k raised, over 172 hours of live mixing, multi genre sets, all vinyl sets, days of preparation from each DJ to achieve this with historical videos now online that I will watch back for weeks to come.

Just Giving8hr DJ Challenge

The idea behind this was to help support our local NHS staff and to create something for people to enjoy and have fun with during lockdown and these testing times. I just wanted to do my bit however small.

I want to thank every DJ, every single person who donated, every person who supported and shared and all those that helped behind the scenes with all sorts of logistics. A special thankyou to Nate for all the artwork.

To finish this fundraiser off, we have gone full circle back to the very first DJ who helped start all this. Kieron will be doing a 12 hour special on Saturday 2nd May bringing you a selection of House/Garage/Breaks/DnB.

Big love to our NHS heroes once more. We really do appreciate what you do for us each and every single day before, now and after COVID-19″.
