Phil Jerrod - "You gotta be kidney me"

As you may or may not know, our esteemed colleague, funnyman and all round bloody good egg, Phil Jerrod,  is having to have a pesky kidney removed as a matter of some urgency.  He has had to cancel his Edinburgh Fringe run, and he is scheduled to have the op in July. He has been told that he will not be able to work for 3 months after the op.  Now, as self employed comedians, we know that we don't have such luxuries as sick pay etc. And cancelling an Edinburgh run and 3 months worth of work is a big ol' deal.  I really don't want Phil and Beck (his lovely wife) to be worrying about making ends meet while they should be concentrating on Phil getting back to full fitness. And I know that the comedy community is a strong one that always comes togetherwhen the chips are down.  So if you can, I'd really appreciate it if you could make a little donation to the fund. Every little bit helps. 

In this game most of us are living month to month - it's great if we can support each other when this sort of curve ball comes along

Thanks so much everybody
