raised of £10,000 target by 558 supporters

    Weʼve raised £14,405 to help Dick Gaughan, who has given so much to the folk scene over the years, get over a health problem.

    Funded on Friday, 14th October 2016

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    It has been observed that Dick Gaughan's performances in recent months haven't been "full-strength Dick Gaughan".

    Dick has just authorised me to circulate this statement about his health.
    This statement about Dick Gaughan's health should be read before reading or believing anything else.

    Dick has now stated publicly at two recent gigs that, "In order to prevent rumours spreading, I think I have had a stroke".
    It is untrue to say that he cannot sing or play guitar.
    However in saying what he has said, Dick is acknowledging that 'something', as yet unconfirmed, is not right.

    Dick has an appointment with a neurologist in early October 2016 when the situation will, it is hoped, be clarified.
    Until then "I think I have had stroke" is not an opinion based on medical fact.

    From John Barrow. Dick's agent and friend.

    Dick is resting after October.

    All moneys received in this fund will be transferred to Dick after one month.

    We wish him well.

      Update from the Page owner

      The CrowdFunding page is now closed. The final figure is £14,405 raised by 558 supporters. That is 13,405 more than I initially hoped for! What an amazing response. Thank you everyone who donated so generously! The money, less JustGiving's 5%, should be transferred to Dick's account on Wednesday 26th October. I hope he recovers soon and well. He is an international treasure.

      A small amount in return for all the years and all the music, but heartfelt nonetheless. Get well soon Dick.

      Here's hoping for a speedy and trouble free recovery and that eventually you'll be back travelling that gruelling road.
