Alistair Hulett Critically Ill
Many of you will know of Alistair Hulett, the renowned political singer and founding member of folk punk band Roaring Jack, and current member of The Malkies.
He has worked with people such as Billy Bragg, The Pogues, The Men They Couldn’t Hang, Roy Bailey, June Tabor and Dave Swarbrick.
I’ve just received this message from mutual friend Fatima that Alistair is severely unwell and would welcome your messages of support. Here is the message below:
You may not have heard the news, so I’d like to share with you that Alistair has been critically ill in hospital here in Glasgow for the last three weeks. He’s suffering from liver failure and is in urgent need of an organ transplant.
Until now he hasn’t wanted people to know but as the news has started to spread, already the messages of hope and encouragement are pouring in from friends and fans alike.
This is proving to be really beneficial for Alistair’s spirits and we know that if he is to beat this dreadful illness he needs to be in as positive a frame of mind as possible.
If you feel like sending him an email message, please write to [email protected], as I have access to his account and can print out the emails for him.
If you prefer to send a card or letter, his address is:
Southern General Hospital
1345 Govan Road
Glasgow G51 4TF
Thank you for your support, prayers, love and warm wishes.
