RNIB volunteers will get to see Rod Stewart’s Amex gig for free
KIND-hearted volunteers will be given the chance to see a top singer strut his stuff for free.
Those prepared to give up eight hours of their day at Rod Stewart’s Brighton gig will get to see his performance for free.
The helpers will be asked to carry collection buckets and assist disabled people into the American Express Community Stadium.
The offer is being made by sight loss charity Royal National Institute of Blind People whose vice president is the Maggie May singer.
Volunteers able to work between 3pm and 11pm could be saving themselves up to £105 on the highest-priced ticket.
The charity hopes to raise £4,000 from the event next Friday with every penny going towards supporting blind and partially sighted people in the UK.
It is hoped that up to 60 volunteers can be found to help out on the night.
The charity is looking for help for the Brighton and Stoke legs of the singer’s UK tour which also takes in Taunton, Blackpool and Falkirk.
More than 20,000 fans had already snapped up tickets by the end of April with 2,000 extra tickets released in response to the demand to see the 69-year-old.
Rod Stewart and his wife Penny Lancaster-Stewart have been supporters of the charity for the past ten years and have both been vice presidents since 2007.
A charity spokeswoman said: “The more volunteers we can get, the better really and the more money we can raise for the charity.
“We just thought it would be a nice way to give people the chance to do something different on a Friday night.
“Penny attended an event we hosted way back in 2003 and wanted to support the work of the charity, and that was the beginning of the great support they have both given to the charity over the last decade.”
