Jimmy Greaves appeal. Terry Baker appeared on ITV main news in London region today 26.8.15 to try and help the justgiving.com/jimmygreaves appeal to raise money for Jims long and arduous rehabilitation programme. Any small donations gratefully received. Jimmy is still very unwell and needs if we can praise some funds, virtual round the clock care. If you feel able to help in some small way we would be grateful. He is unlikely to appear in public ever again and it is so sad but we are fighting hard to at least try and get him on his feet again for the future
