I really feel sorry for all who are unable to work during the lockdown and who have no means of an income. The people who entertain us during the good and bad times are now in desperate need of some funds just to provide food for their family during the very tough time of lockdown. No matter how desperately they want to work to generate some income, they are unable to.
The entertainment industry, more specifically the musicians who are still up and coming are hit extremely hard by this unfortunate, required lockdown situation. They are dependent on gigs and have planned their sessions a year in advance.
They are now faced with cancellations of the shows due to the lockdown and due to this have no income at all for them and their families to make ends meet
We are unable to live a balanced life without music as it is food for the soul during good and bad times in our personal lives. It is important to allow for very good artists such as Gareth James to survive this setback and at minimum be able to provide food for his family of 3 during this extreme tough time.
The funds will be for Gareth James, to ensure he is able to provide for his family's basic needs during the tough time.
