Why we need your help

THE LEN GIBSON APPEAL

During the Second World War Len Gibson served with 125 Anti-Tank Field Regiment of the Royal Artillery. In 1942 Len’s transport ship was attacked by the Japanese and he, along with his comrades, became prisoners of war for over 3 years on the infamous Burma Death Railway.

Now, aged 101 Len is taking on a new challenge.
A celebration of Len’s extraordinary life will put the spotlight on the charity close to his heart – Daft as a Brush Cancer Patient Care – as it extends free transport for cancer patients nationwide.
The aim is to be operating in hospitals in Aberdeen, Londonderry, Cardiff and London in 2022 – and Len is helping appeal for volunteers and to step forward to help.
The Daft as a Brush Cancer Patient Care charity offers transport services to outpatients, free of charge, to and from hospital who are undergoing chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy cancer treatment. Each vehicle is staffed by a trained volunteer driver and a companion to care for the mobility of the patient during the journey, pre and post treatment.
The very first ambulance is named after Len and called Len "Guitar" Gibson, and adopted by Hasting Hill Academy school where Len used to teach music and became Deputy Headmaster.
Can you help Len take Daft as a brush Nationwide? We’re helping cancer patients all over the country on their journey to recovery.
Thank you.
