Completely ClassicAL: Alexander Armstrong does 24 concerts in 24 hours with Addison Lee
At Addison Lee, we’ve taken people and parcels on many an unusual journey, but transporting a celebrity to appear at 24 concerts across 24 hours is a first for us.
In support of Classic FM’s charity, Global’ s Make Some Noise, station presenter Alexander Armstrong (also of ‘Pointless’ fame) set himself the challenge of singing at 24 concerts in 24 hours across London and the South of England.
Key to his efforts – which end on the Classic FM terrace in Leicester Square – has been 5 Addison Lee drivers who’ve carried Alexander and team to venues including Luton Airport Apron, the London Transport Museum, Wembley Stadium, the River Thames, and St Paul’s Cathedral.
One of the 24 stops was a special concert with the dementia charity, Forget-Me-Not Chorus, one of the 100 charities supported by Global’ s Make Some Noise this year.
The money raised from the Music Marathon will support crucial services at the small charities, including food banks, mental health and domestic violence helplines, care support, community projects and employment programmes.
