Get Jo Walking Rehabilitation Fund

Jo is currently trying to rebuild her life after suffering a spinal infarction (more commonly known as a spinal stroke), which has left her paralysed from the waist down. Jo hopes to raise significant funds to continue and build upon her specialised neurological rehabilitation at Neurokinex in Gatwick, which is part of the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation. Here she has access to the latest global breakthroughs in neuroscience including the Xcite Wide Pulse Stimulation system which aims to reawaken pathways between muscle and brain, and a full bodyweight assisted gait Locomotor Training system, which essentially reminds the body how to walk.

Motown Gold celebrate the finest songs from the Tamala Motown and Classic Soul era. Experience songs made famous by musical ‘giants’ such as Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin and The Jackson 5. Older and younger generations all enjoy the classic songs. And that’s because some of the most legendary songwriters of all time wrote them – so we think they are timeless.

You will be thrilled by the distinctive harmony of up to three singers, and an authentic brass trio that transports you and your guests back to the 60s when Motown made its mark. Consider it the ultimate Motown tribute band.
