Although I have always loved music I did not start to play and compose until late in life.
I had been a taxi driver for many years and had customers which included Michael Caine and Freddie Starr.
I was taken ill in 2012 and was partially paralysed down my left side.
This resulted in my having to give up taxi driving.
I decided to become a carer for some of my older customers who just needed a bit of help shopping and preparing meals etc.
It was during my recovery that a good friend introduced me to a keyboard.
After giving Greensleeves a good bashing for a few months my playing got better and I started to compose.
My care clients loved my songs which inspired me to compose more songs.
One of my clients was taken ill with cancer.
It was so hard watching her go through this terrible illness.
I cared for her up to palliative care and sadly lost her in 2014.
I then decided to sell my songs on the internet and donate the proceeds of sales to cancer research.
It was at this point I decided to choose a particular cancer to support.
I decided Children's Cancer Research.
So I started https://www.childrenwithcancercharity.org
In 2018 I was diagnosed with Parkinsons.
Although this has slowed me down a bit I still want to try to raise as much money as I can with your help.
Since starting I have raised over £10,300 for Children's Cancer Research.
I hope that my future sales will help to raise even more money so as to help rid the world of these horrible children's illnesses.
Please buy a song or two or please just make a small donation on my Charity Links page.
Thank you for all your support.
