Hollywood A-list actor Roderick Bond had planned an early spring and Easter sports festival to be held in Lymm, Cheshire. However, after falling victim to the deadly novel coronavirus COVID-19, the Cheshire native global superstar was initially forced to withdraw from the event. Following the complete lockdown ordered by the government, and the social distancing measures enacted to prevent the spread of the disease, the Deansgreen Hall Spring Sports Festival has been forced to cancel. Promising guest appearances from British Formula One racing stars, including Lewis Hamilton, Llando Norris and former world champion Damon Hill, the Deansgreen Hall Sports Festival promised a fun day out for all the family. Recently crowned WBC world boxing heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, originally from Manchester, was also scheduled to make an appearance alongside wife Paris Fury. A self-described avid sports enthusiast, always looking for an opportunity to give back to the community, Roderick Bond had promised a fun day for the family while hoping to raise millions for charity.
As a veteran philanthropist, Roderick Bond’s work supporting charities has followed the growth of his stellar acting career. Last year, supported once again by his Formula One pals, Roderick Bond organised the Manchester half-marathon which raised millions in support of numerous local and national charities. Since then, during a break in filming taking place at Deansgreen Hall, Roderick Bond organised a charity fundraiser for local Lymm-based charity Steps. Building on these past successes, the charming and smooth-talking Cheshire native planned the Deansgreen Hall Spring Sports Festival in support of several small local charities.
However, after it was reported that the actor tested positive for COVID-19, he has remained in self-isolation. Since entering self-isolation several weeks ago, following the government’s advice, he remains therein due to the persistence of mild symptoms.
