To raise funds, and improve the rehabilitation and recovery of Dave Pegler…..


Dave Pegler is a musical ‘tour de force’! He is the founder and powerhouse behind the Bath-based Park Lane Big Band. Since their inception in 2000, Dave and his band have been huge supporters of numerous charity events, helping raise huge sums of money whilst bringing a great deal of musical joy at the same time. The Park Lane Big Band has had a major impact on our lives…..They were the band Cliff took me to dance to whilst we were courting…..they played at our wedding….and mine and Nicky’s 50th Birthday Bash! We have danced with them at lots of charity gigs and they never disappoint.

Sadly, at the beginning of the year, and just as Dave was about to celebrate his first days of retirement, he suffered a life-changing cerebral stroke whilst on holiday with his wife, Lucy, and friends in his beloved Italian Alps. Thanks to the skill of the medical staff in Italy and to his incredible will to fight, Dave made it through several dire prognoses received both in Italy and, when deemed fit to travel, in Wales. After many months of NHS and Private healthcare, he is finally at home but needs constant care.
