Greg Gilbert Appeal

Greg Gilbert is one of 8 artists undertaking a residency in God’s House Tower as part of GHT – a reincarnation in 2016. The above photo was taken while Greg was working during GHT’s open week back in October this year.

Greg found fame as front man of the band The Delays and has since gone on to try his hand as a visual artist – particularly known for incredible biro drawings (which you can see on his website). Greg has suffered with ill health for some time now but just recently doctors were finally able to diagnose him with cancer. Unfortunately the cancer has already spread from his bowel to his lungs.

This has come as a huge blow to his fiancée Stacey and two young daughters, his friends and family, to Southampton’s creative community and to fans of the delays across the globe. Greg is currently undergoing chemotherapy, however because of how developed the cancer is he’s likely to need extensive treatment in the USA in order to give him the best hope of survival.

Please help Stacey towards funding potentially life saving treatment for Greg by donating at: https://www.gofundme.com/give4greg
