Laurence ‘Loz’ Colbert, former drummer with indie band Ride, is to take part in a race in Oxford to raise money for the National Autistic Society.

Mr Colbert, now a drummer for ex-Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes, will take part in Run Jericho 10k tomorrow.

He has so far raised more than £1,000 and said: “Children with autism struggle with basic aspects of life we consider easy, or straightforward, or logical – like going out into a crowd, or changing a routine spontaneously. Some are so sensitive to sound that they find it difficult to filter out the everyday noises which we take for granted.”
