A Leg To Stand On heads to London for inaugural ‘Rocktoberfest’ event

Related Topics

A Leg To Stand On’s (ALTSO) live music fundraising event ‘Rocktoberfest’ is set to add London to its schedule this year.

The New York and Chicago editions of Rocktoberfest raised nearly $900,000 in 2018 for ALTSO, which provides free orthopaedic care – including prosthetic limbs, mobility aids, and rehabilitation – to children suffering from untreated congenital or traumatic limb disabilities in the developing world. The two events host over 2,000 professionals from the finance industry, and have helped ALTSO treat more than 16,700 children who would otherwise have no access to care.

The event, to be held on Wednesday, 6 June at 8 Northumberland Avenue, just south of Trafalgar Square, unites bands comprised of professionals from the finance industry for a night of rock and roll music in support of ALTSO’s global medical programs, with those who raise the most getting to choose their spot on the bill.

The net proceeds raised at the event will benefit ALTSO’s 10 programmes in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
