Cassidy Guitars "Leros" Appeal

Those of you who know me well will know that I wouldn't have been here if my Dad hadn't been so lucky to survive the opening of the Battle of Leros on the morning of September 26th, 1943. So I have always felt a debt owed to the Island which you can find more on the facebook page I set up ~ Battle of Leros.

Leros is now facing another challenge as one of the Greek islands closest to Turkey, Leros has a burgeoning Migrant / Refugee population full of people who have nowhere to go. Consequently, they have been housed in a temporary migrant "hot spot" for a number of years now. A bad situation has just got worse with an outbreak of Covid 19 resulting in the camp being locked down by the Greek Army.

Echo100Plus is a charity which has been supporting the crisis on Leros for the past few years.

Following the Covid 19 outbreak they have now launched an appeal to provide basic practical support (face masks / hand sanitiseres etc.) to the 1400 + residents of the Camp. We would like to support this in 2 ways.

Firstly via this "Go fund me" campaign we are inviting donations in support of the work of Echo100Plus. For every £5 donated on this "Go Fund Me" page we will allocate one ticket to be entered into a prize Draw to take place at 9pm on 30th September 2020 with the lucky winner announced via the Cassidy Guitars facebook page.

The winner will receive one of our Bluesville "Leros" BV301 Guitars all set up and posted to you free anywhere in the World. Please leave your name and contact details when you make your donation so that you can be entered into the Draw.
Secondly if you'd like to buy one our Bluesville "Leros" BV301 Guitars via our website ~ ~ during September 2020 we will add £100 to this "Go Fund Me" Leros Appeal.

Here you will find full details of the Bluesville "Leros" BV301 guitar...

All proceeds will go to Echo100Plus to support their work on Leros.

As my Mother used to say "There but for the Grace of God go I". They need help now, one day you might need help also.

Thanks for your support,

Simon Cassidy
