The Martyn Love Appeal
Tragically, on the 27 th April 2019, Martyn was killed in an accident whilst attending a wedding for a close friend. Martyn leaves behind a family, not only mourning their beloved father and husband, but also leaving a grieving family with no immediate means of support.
The Danny Simcic Appeal
Danny Simcic was diagnosed with stage 3 Bowel Cancer in 2018 and under-went a total colectomy and has endured a very challenging journey since. Numerous surgeries later, chemotherapy, dealing with an ileostomy bag (which was thankfully reversed just 8 weeks ago), along with other health issues along the way and lengthy hospital stays, life has been overwhelming to say the least for the past 12 months.
The Caring for Cathy Appeal
Cathy Narayan has been teaching the wonderful gift of music in Perth and Melbourne to her Violin students for over 30 years.
She is married with 2 children and this has been their family’s main income for the last 20 years.
The day before Mother’s Day Cathy was in an horrific car accident and very nearly lost her right arm. She has undergone extensive skin grafts from her stomach and thighs as she lost more than 2/3 of the skin and muscle and also broke multiple bones.
Glen Hannah Appeal
On May 27th, 2019 the Australian music community lost a great man, Glen Hannah. Glen’s extraordinary gifts were exceptional for one person to behold. His brilliance in the music world shone through his entire being and were not only manifested in his fingers as a guitarist and his creative eye to detail in design and photography. He was renowned for his fathomless music sensibility, understanding and patience as a producer, and his innate ability to foster musicianship and integrity amongst whomever had the fortune to be near him. So much so that his tragic loss has reverberated throughout the whole industry.
Greg Weaver Appeal
6th May, 2019
Yesterday we lost one of the finest people I know. Greg Weaver was family to us. I think he worked with every act we manage or have managed over the last 20 years. We had artists who ‘didn’t need a tour manager’, who after one show with Greg, wouldn’t work without him. He was so calm – nobody ever saw him stressed.
In Loving memory of Amy Longhurst

Donate to the Jim Medcraft Appeal #50forjim
Jim Medcraft was working in America a couple of years ago as a Visual Jockey (VJ) when he was hit by a sports car travelling at very high speed. The car didn’t stop and Jim was left for dead with huge injuries to his legs, spine, brain, shoulder as well as internal injuries. Almost three years later, often spent in great pain, and many operations later, Jim’s right leg has been saved. However, his left leg and foot are never going to be right and will always be a constant source of pain. So Jim has made the almost impossible decision to allow the amputation of his left foot and leg from just below the knee.
