Colin Middlebrough, our favourite hooligan #hospiceheroes

Published on: 25/04/2014

H1Volunteer Colin Middlebrough, affectionately known as ‘Counting Colin’ by his colleagues, describes himself as a ’74 year old hooligan’.

You might think he’s being a little harsh on himself. But consider this: his pride and joy is a Triumph Bonneville 900cc motorbike; he is a super fantastic drummer who played with The Beatles between the departure of Pete Best and the arrival of Ringo; he’s worked with Tom Jones; he has just finished touring with Barbara Dickson AND he now coaches drum students at LIPA.


Colin, whose day job was with HSBC, now helps out with the Fundraising team. He counts them in, and he counts them out. Sorry…. He’s truly one of our Hospice Heroes!

Did we mention that he’s played with The Beatles?!
