Principal Aims

 a) To bring a smile to anybody feeling lonely or to help celebrate an occasion during the COVID-19 Lockdown period

b) To raise some money for a variety of charities under increased pressure

c) To provide myself with a pro-active reason to stay creative and occupied with fresh challenges in the absence of live gigs and theatre work.

How it works

If you know somebody who might enjoy a personalised musical greeting to help them celebrate an occasion or just to brighten up any old Wednesday - you can request any song of your choice. Before an agreed deadline I deliver a video file via email of the specially arranged and recorded song along with any message you'd like to include. 

You may also send up to 10 photos which I can include in the video. N.B. there is a minimum donation for this service.

There is no set fee, instead I ask for a donation of whatever amount you feel is appropriate. I collect all the donations and give 50% to a chosen charity. After 3 weeks I donated over £800 to the Southwark Foodbank, and am currently collecting for the Newham Foodbank.

For information on how to donate, just email me using the contact form on this website.
