Two weeks ago as I was travelling to Blackpool for Rebellion festival I read the sad story of Lawrence Graham Leigh. Lawrence is battling cancer and required stg£16,000 to go towards treatment. I’ve never met Lawrence but feel like I know him well. That’s because when I was involved in putting on bands in Dublin he was putting those same bands on in London. He had a record label, Fluffy Bunny and by all accounts seemed to be one of the good guys. Of course he was, he’s one of our good guys.
Well a quick fortnight later and the target has been reached. stg£16,000 and counting raised, not just by the punks but certainly pushed by many who Lawrence helped through the years. Of course he deserves every penny but it is great to see that his treatment can go ahead.
As for cancer…………………… We will just have to keep fighting eh?
