John Caulfield's recovery: update

In late March the BIB reported that John Caulfield (right), fiddler in Dublin's Sackville String Band in the late 1970s and since resident in the USA, had recently suffered a stroke and needed prolonged convalescence and continued treatment. A GoFundMe scheme was set up by his US friends with a target sum of $10,000, which was raised inside three weeks.

Ingrid Scozzafava, the appeal organiser, now reports that John is making heroic efforts in his recovery; however, as he will be needing more care for a long time, the target has been raised to $25,000, of which about half has been raised in a month. Donations can be made through the GoFundMe website.
