Friday 2nd December 2011: Tracey Rogers (Executive Producer), Simon Weston (Falklands war veteran ) and Mark Kenna (Director / Producer).
Falklands war veteran, Simon Weston joined the Wootton Bassett Rocks team in Royal Wootton Bassett on Friday 2nd December during the biggest
Christmas lights crowd the town has seen. The High Street was packed with more than 10,000 revellers, who had come to enjoy the many stalls, shops and shows on offer with the Wootton Bassett Rocks stall playing the charity music video selling t-shirts, wristbands, Wootton Bassett Rock and limited edition DVD's, raising money for Royal British Legion, SSAFA, Combat Stress and The Undentable Trust.
About Simon: In 1982 the Sir Galahad was destroyed in Bluff Cove on the Falkland Islands. On board was Simon Weston, Welsh Guardsman, a name and face that was going to become well known for his struggle to overcome his injuries (46% burns) and redefine his role in life. Simon endured years of re-constructive surgery, including 70 major operations or surgical procedures. For more information, please visit Simon's website and follow him on twitter @simon_weston.

"I really enjoyed the day (playing drums in the street along with the other five was a rare treat) and the atmosphere there was very friendly, it was great to see so many people turning up to support the cause and sticking with it despite the rain. You must be pleased with the final result. All the best - Rick'
