Campaign launches to get Delays to No.1 on Valentine’s Day
The singer and guitarist has been diagnosed with stage four bowel cancer. The GoFundMe campaign has raised the initial £100,000 target in a month, but Gilbert and his family have since been told that they will need to raise more if he is to get the urgent treatment need, which is not currently available on the NHS.
A charity gig has also been set up to help raise the funds, which takes place in February 14th at Southampton venue The Brook. Now, friends, fans and family are hoping to get the Delays’ 2006 single Valentine to the top of the charts for Valentine’s Day, with all money made going towards Gilbert’s treatment.
Fans are being asked to download and/or stream the song between February 3rd to 9th.
Check out the official Facebook page for more details about the campaign and where to download the song from.
