Dave Sherwood & Badly Drawn Boy in Thaxted and Saffron Walden
Saturday 20th April 2013
Musician and Mercury Prize Winner Badly Drawn Boy has kindly agreed to waver his performance fee and expences to make a guest appearance at the Ethan Rees Linwood Memorial Music Charity Event in Thaxted, Essex on Saturday 20th April 2013.
Badly Drawn Boy (aka Damon Gough) is a close friend of Sports Memorabilia’s Dave Sherwood - who is a close friend of the Linwood family. When Damon heard of the tragic loss of Ethan from Dave he immediately said he would support the music event and the Linwood family. Ethan was only 11 years old at the time of the car accident and the day Dave spoke to Damon about the music event, it was actually the day of Damon’s own son’s 11th birthday!
Damon: “It really struck a chord with me being Oscar’s 11th birthday and I had a few tears, I just can’t imagine what the Linwood family are going through right now. I said to Dave that I would love to attend the event and support the family, to me it’s probably the most important event I’ll ever do”.

Over the festive period SportsMem's Dave Sherwood was lucky enough to meet a real hero - Karl Hinett
Karl Hinett & Dave Sherwood
Karl Hinett - Hero. Army private and burns survivor after his Warrior tank was petrol bombed during 2005 in Basra, Iraq. A number of Warrior tanks approached and encircled the jail in order to secure the release of the soldiers, however an aggressive mob of local people rapidly grew and started to throw stones then petrol bombs.
Karl recalled, “A riot had broken out and we were the first tank on the scene. A mob quickly formed around our Warrior. What hit me first was a really strong smell of petrol. I never saw it coming at all. Then it engulfed my body as I was drenched in petrol”.
Karl wrestled his way out of the tank and then passed out from the extreme pain of sustaining 37% burns to his hands, legs, arms and face. Karl underwent five years of skin grafts and operations at Selly Oak Hospital to heal his injuries.
