Local DJs smash £10K charity target

Two Shropshire DJs have been on a charity mission this year. Dave Prince and Paul Bennett, who both perform as The 90s Revival, have made it their 2021 goal to raise £10,000 for charity. This month they reached the impressive milestone after Dave took on a cycling challenge, taking the total raised to £10,260.

When live gigs were taken off the agenda again in January, the DJ duo re-launched their lockdown live sets streamed over the web to thousands of 90s revellers. Each week they chose a different charity to raise funds for and were supported by sponsors and donations.

The shows raised money for the Down’s Syndrome Association, Lingen Davies Cancer Fund, Grinshill Animal Rescue, Midlands Air Ambulance, Guide Dogs, PSPA, Hope House and Ty Gobaith Children’s Hospices, Shrewsbury Town in the Community, The Harry Johnson Trust and Shropshire Mental Health Support.

Dave Prince said, “We launched the charity series of lockdown livestreams at the start of the year to do something positive, whilst we weren’t able to get out DJing. We know many charities have lacked fundraising opportunities in the last year, so we wanted to help.”

To make up the last part of the charity target Dave challenged himself to ride 200 miles throughout May. His cycling feat raised an impressive £1,253 for Prostate Cancer UK.

The 90s Revival have released tickets for two live events at Greenhous West Mid Showground on August 6 and 7.
