John Silvester Wheelchair Appeal

John Silvester Wheelchair Appeal magazine cover

Wanting to raise awareness for a wheelchair fund for John Silvester. 

John had a bad car accident not long back and has lost the use of his legs. His crappy NHS wheelchair is a real discomfort and a pain. We're currently 575 sheets away from getting him a nice one.

I Hope John will be back to his usual dancing self again before too long. In the meantime, this will help him greatly.


Hopefully members can help us reach our target.

(Please feel free to move to front page news item - thanks).

Twenty two hundred pounds in three days! What great pals John has and big thanks to members for their generous donations. 

£285 off £2500 target as at now. I hope he'll be upstanding and avidly dancing again soon, but at least this will help in the meantime. Thanks again.

Let me tell you all, got determination all right , like the night 5/6 years ago when he walked from nottingham train station to blackhearts allnighter when it was held in bestwood village ,7miles in a snow storm wearing leather soled shoes ! Never forget the look on his face when i told him he could of got a tram to within 1/2 a mile .
