Mr. Scruff works with WWF to help the Western Gray Whales

As you know, I am quite fond of whales. This week the Scruff touring tea shop is at my gigs in Scotland & Newcastle, raising money for the WWF, to help the western gray whales. There are only around 130 of these left, and they live off the coast of Sakhalin, a Russian island just north of Japan. Their habitat & feeding grounds are being threatened by oil companies. For more info, check http://www.wwf.org.uk/westerngray. I'm out like a trout!

Latitude & Big Chill.. thank you!

A huge thank you to all the tea tent staff, DJs & of course the dancers & tea drinkers who visited our Make Us A Brew tea tent at the Latitude & Big Chill festivals. You can hear my DJ set with Kelvin Brown from Saturday night at the Big Chill tea tent here. Your tea drinking also helped raise an impressive £950 for Francis House Children's Hospice.

Make Us A Brew tea tent at the Big Chill

After a damp but very enjoyable weekend at Latitude festival, myself & the Make Us A Brew tea crew are looking forward to another lovely session at the Big Chill. The tent will be open all weekend in our regolar lakeside spot, with a fine selection of tea, coffee, cakes, plus music supplied by my crack team of soulful selectors on a lovely Funktion One sound system.
