An Appeal for help – Rikki LaCoste

Hello all,

An important request here, and thanks to all who read it and act upon it.

Rikki LaCoste is a Canadian musician, Pagan, sound technician, Magician, father, radio presenter, researcher, eco activist and all round great guy. But in May this year he suffered an enormous personal tragedy when his house burnt down, the blaze destroying everything he owned. Rikki has been in temporary accommodation ever since, and is struggling to rebuild his life.

My wife Della and our Canadian friend Zena Hagerty have launched a fundraiser to help Rikki with food and re-housing costs, amongst other ‘luxuries’ such as phone credit so he can communicate with his children.

Zena is a co-host of Nocturnal Frequency Radio, along with Steve Genier and Alex Rondini, and Della and myself as well as Rikki are proud to be part of that online radio community. Zena has produced this video, with the help of her partner Cody Lanktree, to help raise awareness of Rikki’s plight:

Some of you may remember my interview with Rikki which went out at Hallowe’en 2012, via his popular radio show Kakophonos. If you missed it, you can listen here:

If any of my readers can spare the slightest donation towards helping Rikki during this terrible time it would be VERY much appreciated. Just remember – this could happen to any one of us.  The paranormal community is not a rich one, but it should be a cohesive and supportive one.  PLEASE help if you can.

Here is where you can donate – the URL says it all.

Thanks to you all,
