wes.w Tony Rose (16) RE: Tony Rose 29 Jun 01

Tony phoned last night and sends his thanks for all the messages, cards, etc. Obviously he can't respond to all of them, but he does appreciate them all (I think he's really lapping up all the fan mail!). He's due to start the chemo soon, so I unashamedly repeat this news report from the BBC Folk Web site:


Tony Rose, the well-loved and respected west country folk singer, has recently undergone a major operation for cancer of the colon. His course of chemotherapy may cost as much as 9,000. Many of his friends wish to support Tony and his family at this difficult time and have set up a Benefit Fund. Sidmouth International Festival has included a special concert in the festival programme to take place on Thursday 9th August. Performers so far include Martin Carthy and Norma Waterson, Roy Bailey, Chris and Pete Coe, Mike Waterson and Chris Foster. The Festival has generously offered to contribute the marquee, PA, lighting, stage and staff. The concert is a non-season ticket event with a minimum ticket price of 8. At the time of going to press, Whitby and Fylde Festivals have also offered support. Other people may wish to organise a small event, club night etc; a number are already doing so. Tony has asked us to express his thanks to every one who has sent cards and messages of support, which are all very much appreciated.
Anyone who would like to make a contribution to the fund can send a cheque payable to the 'Tony Rose Benefit Fund' by post to:
Tony Rose Benefit Fund,
The Whole Wide World,
27 Market Street,
Crewkerne, Somerset,
TA18 7JU.
