Welcome to my Just Giving Page.
Here's some info on the wing walk, who the charity is and why I plan to put myself (who isn't a fan of heights) through this experience!
Tonic Music Charity along with the help of Barry Ashworth (Dub Pistols) have recruited an array of artists to join him, including: Rodney P, Brandon Block, Bez (Happy Mondays), Mike Keat (aka Miguel Mantovani from The Cuban Brothers), Too Many T’s, Sister Mary Lou (OMG! It’s The Church), Gardna, Mike Freear (Slamboree)...and many more! They will taking to the skies on top of a Boeing Stearman Biplane, performing a series of flypasts, zoom climbs, steep dives and banks - all united in raising mental health awareness on behalf of Tonic Music for Mental Health
Mental health is an incredibly important topic and something I feel we need to continue to talk more about to support and guide those who need it.
I am completely terrified of the thought of being strapped to a plane but if it means I can raise a large amount of money for great cause then say no more!
Tonic’s aim is to target green rooms and venues across the UK, and to include ‘The Tonic Rider’ on all rider lists and wall posters. It will provide information on coping strategies, anxiety, depression, performance anxiety to post-show blues, along with signposting to services that can help in a crisis.
With the rise of suicide within the music industry, Tonic (supported by our patron Barry Ashworth) have decided it's time to make a change. Having recently lost fellow artists to suicide, Barry knows only too well how touring pressure, excess and exhaustion can have devastating consequences. Mental health support and guidance within the music industry is paramount.
Please support Barry & Tonic to make a difference and reduce deaths by suicide within the music industry.
