Metal band reforms to support autism

Former heavy metal guitarist Jamie Edwards-Taylor is reforming Bull Vs. Bear for a one-off gig in Kidderminster in aid of Hearts and Minds as his son is currently being assessed for autism.

"Seeing Melanie Sykes on the 'This Morning' programme promoting the Hearts and Minds website  gave us more information and the courage to deal with our son's needs," says Jamie.  "I forgot to tweet my thanks to her, so we're doing this instead.  We're not collecting old phones as luckily for us we had the funds to get our son an iPad, and it's been extremely helpful in respect of calming him.  He is still too young to get the maximum benefit from it, but we are hoping for further improvement once we get more support.."

The Bull Vs. Bear 10th anniversary gig will be held at the Boar's Head in Kidderminster on Saturday 23rd February 2013.  Entry is free, but donations to Hearts and Minds are requested.  Doors open at 8pm.
