My wife gave birth to our beautiful son Oscar in February a whole 2 months earlier than planned and from then on it has been a whirlwind.
Unfortunately Oscar was born with a complex heart condition which required open heart surgery to correct, but all did not go to plan and we sadly lost him in July.
We have been on a roller coaster ride since Oscars birth as he spent his entire life in different hospitals but we are determined to turn our tragedy into something positive to help other families like ours.
So we have now embarked on a series of fundraising campaigns the first of which is a coffee morning to be held here in my workshop with all money raised going to Oscar's Adventures charities.
In addition to this first event we are also planning an acoustic open mic night later on in the year and a children's story book. Watch this space for more updates on these events.
To find our more about the charities we are supporting and donate in memory of Oscar you can find everything you need to know by clicking here or visiting our facebook page.
I hope to see you on the 13th to enjoy a relaxed cuppa and delicious bite to eat in aid of some amazing charities that are extremely close to my heart.
