SITMS 2009 raised £66,315 for The Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society and won 'MS Fundraiser of the Year' in 2010. The event also received a huge amount of mainstream Television and Newspaper coverage. SITMS 2012 will attempt to break its own current world record with a target of over 800 drummers!
Once again, the brainchild of event organisers Rick and Karen Prince, Stick it to MS is back on Sunday 15th of July 2012 and will be held at EventCity in Manchester. The event, sponsored by Natal Drums (Marshall Amplification), will feature a whole host of celebrities together with drummers from Natal's artist roster.
Jim Marshall OBE, founder of Marshall Amps and Natal Drums, was a great supporter of SITMS. He was a life-long drummer and a committed fund raiser having raised millions for numerous charities throughout his life. Although Jim made his name making the archetypal rock 'n' roll amplifier he had an ambition to one day make drum kits that would be as innovative as his amps. This dream came true two years ago with Jim's acquisition of Natal Percussion. The SITMS event combines two of Jim's greatest passions: the support of worthy charities and playing the drums.
More details will be released over the coming weeks.
