Bruce Springsteen fans better set aside a whole day this weekend (literally).

Hungry Heart U.K., a group of British Springsteen fans that host regular Boss-themed club nights, will be putting on “Hungry Heart Springsteen-athon,” an online 24-hour event that will raise money for a variety of local U.K. charities in their fight against the spread of COVID-19.

In a statement on their Instagram, Hungry Heart U.K. wrote, “We want to raise £10,000 for several charities that really need extra support right now, so on Saturday 2 May we will be DJing 24 hours of non-stop Springsteen, and we’d love you to support us! Please like, share, tag your friends and *donate* to help us raise as much as we possibly can for Childline, Trussell Trust, Barts Trust, Age UK and Hospice UK…We want everyone from around the world to get involved and join our Springsteen-athon. It doesn’t matter what time it is, we will be live streaming our DJ set all day and all night, splitting the hours up into different ‘themes’! We’re so pleased that our Hungry Heart house parties have spread some joy at this difficult time – now let’s go one step further and raise what we can for the other people who need our help right now!”

The “Hungry Heart Springsteen-athon” will take place beginning May 2 at 8 AM ET and wrap May 3 at 8 AM ET. For complete details, head over to HungryHeartEvents.com.
