    I know who Clarence Adoo is, but could you please tell me what the Clarence Adoo Trust is?

    Here's a bit of info selected from Clarence's website

    'In August 1995, he was driving from Newcastle to Shoeburyness (Essex) to be at his brother's stag party. For some unknown reason, his car went out of control and turned over. He broke his neck and became paralysed from the neck down. Thanks to his trumpet playing, he has a strong diaphragm and can breathe without the aid of a machine. He can also think and speak. But that's about all. He needs constant care and special equipment.

    In June 1996 he left hospital and moved in to a specially adapted house. The most important part of his care is physiotherapy. However, because he is no longer an in-patient, and because he is not about to start walking, physiotherapy has been refused.

    Yet despite all this, Clarence feels no bitterness and apportions no blame.

    His faith in God has kept his inner self at peace and his friends are raising money to see to his temporal needs. As well as the normal expenses of living that we all have, Clarence needs £100,000 a year, mostly for 24-hour care cover. There are also capital expenditure items. The income from the State will not go far towards meeting Clarence's needs.

    The Clarence Adoo Trust has been formed to fund the shortfall.'
