Pop-rockers Hanson have called off a planned charity walk in the U.K. as a major storm hits the country.
The brothers were due to host a barefoot trek around Manchester, England on Wednesday afternoon (05Dec13) ahead of the group’s planned show in the city that night, but the event was called off due to the dangerous weather conditions.
A post on the band’s Twitter.com page, reads, “News: Today’s walk with Hanson is cancelled do (due) to extreme winds in Manchester today. We will still donate for all who register!”
The stars have vowed to make donations to their Take The Walk campaign to ensure the charity does not lose money from the cancellation.
The Hanson brothers set up the organisation following a trip to Africa in 2007 and they have hosted barefoot walks all over the world to raise funds for the cause.
