Tonight’s the night, handholders…
The wonderful Matt Goss will be at The Dorchester Hotel performing a one-off show for Amy and we hope as many as possible of you will be there!
Last night, Matt performed at The London Palladium and gave an exclusive aftershow interview about Amy.
We were all moved by how searingly honest he was.
After losing his own beloved mum – his ‘best friend’ – to cancer, he knows how devastating the disease can be.
“Amy has a family and I know how that feels very, very frightening,” he said. “This won’t ease any of my pain I’ve got my own demons….(But) if I can be of some help just by doing what I do then I’m here….”
Matt made it clear that cancer affects us all at some point in our lives, and we all have our own experience of it. Eventually he got very emotional talking about his mum and couldn’t finish the interview.
We understand how hard this is for him too, which makes what he’s doing all the more caring.
You can listen to the emotional interview here.
So many other people have rallied to show their support too: Eastender Dean Gaffney posted a pic holding the #holdamyshand message and singer Susan Boyle tweeted about Amy’s plight – as did the one and only RONAN KEATING!
And comedian Ian Royce announced that he will be doing a 24hour Walk For Amy, beginning Tuesday 27th January (tomorrow) at 5:45am. He’ll finish the following morning at the Sky News studio – just in time to review the morning’s papers.
Watch his vlog about why he wants to help, here.
But it’s not just celebs who are being moved to action: at last night’s show, one little girl came up to Matt and donated £20 for Amy. It was her Christmas money, she said, which she was going to spend in Hamley’s until she heard Amy’s story.
And, closer to home, Amy’s goddaughters Niamh and Annie have raised £100 for Amy by giving foot spas to family and friends. Well done girls!
Anyone can hold Amy’s hand and raise money for her much-needed operations. Whether you raise £1 or £100 it all makes a difference.
Thank you handholders.
Can’t wait to post an updated fundraising total tomorrow, after tonight’s Goss show. Please, please come along and bring as much as you can.
That’s all for now. Thank you once again for holding Amy’s hand.
