800 drummers will attempt to break the world record


SOHAM musician Jeremy Peake is attempting to drum up some support ahead of an upcoming world record attempt.

On Sunday, Jeremy will join 799 other drummers at EventCity in Manchester as they bid to smash the world record for the largest drum kit ensemble, doing their best to keep in time.

The current record, 582 drummers, of which Jeremy was one, was set in Birmingham back in 2009 but the Soham resident believes there is scope to go even bigger this time around.

The drummers have set themselves a target of raising £100 each for the event which would help them raise a whopping £80,000 for the MS Society.

Jeremy said: “The MS Society do great work for people with a cruel disease. If anyone would like to sponsor me, for however small an amount, all of the money will help to improve the lives of sufferers”
