The Malcolm Savage Appeal
They say bad luck comes in threes and Malcolm has certainly been having a bad run in terms of his health over the past year, which has greatly affected his ability to work and earn an income.
First up he had to deal with kidney stones, then knee problems that resulted in 6 months of steroid use, and in the past 3 weeks, he has been diagnosed with cataracts in both eyes which have rendered him legally blind and unable to work.
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.

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.
