We’re pleased to follow up on our announcement of last week regarding the proceeds from Mumford & Sons' (fantastic) Charlotte show. We have now set up the Gentlemen Of The Road Fund which will donate funds to charities fighting for social justice around the world.

We met with the Mayor of Charlotte and some other charities and action groups while we were in town and will be making donations to the following wonderfully worthy organisations: Equality North Carolina, the oldest LGBT rights action group in the US, Time Out Youth, which creates a safe place for young LGBT people in Charlotte and the Equal Justice Initiative, a civil rights campaigning group based in Alabama.

Thanks also go to Grayson and Tina at NC Needs You for their sage advice. Stay tuned for future announcements relating to the Gentlemen Of The Road Fund.
