Thanks for taking the time to visit Peel's Big 75 JustGiving page.

In August we celebrated John Peel's 75th birthday, taking his lead on celebrating August 30th as a day to be excited and happy about.

Peel's Big 75 was a great night with live music, poetry and a brilliant DJ set from Trust The Wizards. It rained... and it rained... yet people stuck around to raise a glass at midnight to the great man that was.

Money raised on the night was split, with half going to Crisis (a charity that has been doing some really good work in community engagement through music) and Shelter (one of John Peel's favourite charities).

This page has been set up for anyone that couldn't make it on the night, but also for those that just want to donate in memory of John Peel as we approach the 10 year anniversary of his passing.

He will always be missed but we shall always be grateful.

Thank you.
