They often say good things can come out of traumatic times and this one definitely qualifies. Following a family emergency for Bring Me The Horizon’s keyboard player Jordan Fish involving his newborn son, Jordan wanted to do something positive for Southampton Hospital, and particularly the PICU (Paediatric Intensive Care Unit) who have been caring for his son Eliott through some very difficult recent days.
As a result, Jordan and his Bring Me The Horizon band mate Oli Sykes are to embark on the arduous task of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania in January next year, with the aim of raising £100,000 pounds for the unit. The complete full story of what Eliott and his family have been through is available to read on Jordan’s JustGiving page, along with the ability to donate towards this incredibly worthy cause.
Bring Me The Horizon have a history of donating to good causes, giving a significant sum of money to The Ghost Inside to help the band with their medical expenses after their bus crash last year. Now they’re aiming to help with a cause much closer to home. So, if you have any spare money, and particularly if you’re in the South of England, please donate, because one day it could be you and your family that rely on a wonderful unit like this.
