Mike Smith charity auction

DC5 frontman's auction should help to raise £50,000 for a special van

In 2003, Mike Smith, the lead singer of the '60s pop group The Dave Clark Five, was critically injured when he fell off a wall. Since then, Mike has been in hospital, and is paralysed from the neck down. He is soon to be discharged from hospital, but he requires a specially designed vehicle to get around. This will cost around £50,000.

To raise money for Mike's van, a charity auction has been set up. So far, items donated to the fund include a signed drum skin from Ringo Starr, as well as Pete Townshend's guitar from the recent Who tour, but organisers hope that fans will donate memorabilia to be sold off at auction. To do this, contact mightyquinnmgt@btinternet.com.

An eBay auction will be starting once more prizes are gathered, but if you would simply like to donate money to 'Van fund', you can send a cheque to:

MIKE SMITH
c/o P.O. Box 4584,
Wilmington,
DE
19807 USA

Alternatively, there's a Paypal account that can be accessed using the email address MikeSmithDC5Drive@msn.com. Donations in currencies other than US Dollars are welcome in this account.

The appeal has been set up by Peter Noone, with support from the Noonatics, his personal fan club!
