Staff and volunteers from TONIC spent a glorious day at the 2-Tone Village in Coventry on
Sunday 4th June.
The day was organised to present two cheques to TONIC from funds raised from a scooter
ride-out to commemorate and celebrate what would have been Terry Hall’s 64th birthday on
19th March 2023. You can read about the ride-out in this BBC report.
All the staff, volunteers and regulars were so welcoming to us and we loved spending time
absorbing the vibrant and incredible musical history within the museum and grounds.
We set up a Tonic stand throughout the day and met lots of lovely people from Coventry and
Between the bands, we were presented with our first cheque from the Chequered Past
Scooter Club based in Worcester. The scooter club had leg shields made to sell at the ride-
out in March. They raised an incredible £1,250. Big thanks to Shawn and all the guys for
Shawn from The Chequered Past Scooter Club had his scooter vinyl wrapped with Terry and
TONIC. We think it looks incredible.
The Chequered Past Scooter Club in Worcester raised £1,250 for TONIC. This was raised when we held a 2-tone event, and sold leg shield banners for the Terry Hall memorial ride at the 2-Tone Museum on Terry's birthday in March. Terry Hall and the specials were a big part of the 2-Tone scene that most of us grew up in and loved, his passing saddened us all, to be able to raise funds for a charity Terry was the patron of is our way of saying 'Thank-you for the music'.
We were presented our second giant cheque from Suky who runs the fantastic memorabilia
shop and the incredible Alf and Angela Who runs the cafe (if you visit, eat here, it’s great), Leonie who runs the brilliant clothes shop and Pete who runs the museum at the Village .
The 2-Tone Village and all their supporters raised an incredible £2,400!
2-Tone Village wanted to show their respect and pay a tribute to Terry Hall. What better way than to support TONIC, the charity that meant so much to him. Love, Love, Love.
Thank you all for sharing your memories of Terry and your love of the music.
