Between Good Friends: Raising Funds for Butterwick Hospice

All for a great cause: Butterwick Hospice
#207: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Relative to my previous ELO Beatles Forever (ELOBF) article entitled Telstar Twist, Yours Truly KJS has been chatting to the aforementioned Andy Wood (a.k.a. the multi-talented Fruity Buckfoot) about a certain unofficial DVD. During that discussion, the conversation turned to the fund raising that Andy is doing for the Butterwick Hospice up in Bishop Auckland. Andy's son suffers from Asperger Syndrome himself and also does voluntary work for this well-deserving and much needed charity.
The CD also features Mel Gale, Steve Midgley and Tina McBain
Andy has compiled, recorded and released an eleven track CD entitled "Between Good Friends" via his musical persona Fruity Buckfoot. The CD features Mel Gale of ELO fame and Tina McBain from the Beatles Blues & Blue Violin Project as well as many other fine musicians. May I encourage you to grab a copy? There are now only forty copies left so time is short if you want to get a hold of an ELO related rarity that also raises awareness and funds for a good cause. You can obtain a copy [while stocks last] by sending a cheque payable to Butterwick Hospice for just £4.50 (inc. P+P) to Andy Wood, 23 Eden Close, Coundon, Bishop Auckland, Durham, DL14 8LB

  1. That brings back memories Keith. Andy has moved so the address isn't now correct.
