February 2017 at Sutton House – Anchors Away/On The Dry Land
(Filmed by Ashley Jones. Sound by James Larcombe)
We would like to let you know about a fundraising campaign to help Tim Smith, of Cardiacs, with specialist healthcare costs. Nearly 10 years ago he suffered a cardiac arrest that left him unable to move or speak and a condition called dystonia, but his mind is as sharp as ever. Funding shortfalls and bureaucracy have seen his rehabilitation grind to a halt….
Even the smallest donation will help and please do share news of this campaign if you can. https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/timsmith?utm_id=108&utm_term=V5j9KPB5k
As you may know William D Drake was a member of Cardiacs and in Sea Nymphs with Tim Smith. Tim also produced the ‘William D Drake’ album.
