Gary donates lyrics

In a bid to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust, Gary Barlow has donated handwritten 'Back For Good' lyrics to 'the art of the song' auction run by Bonhams and the 'Performing Right Society for Music', taking place on 15 December.

Gary, along with Sir Paul McCartney, Sting, Annie Lennox and many others have donated their chosen lyrics to raise money for NHS Cancer units across the country.  

Teenage Cancer Trust funds specialist teenage cancer units in NHS hospitals and with only 17 units across the country the aim of the auction is to raise money to build a further 16.

    I was diagnosed with leukaemia aged nine. Take That have helped me get through my 3 1/4 year treatment and have helped me to recover from it all afterwards with their music since they came back in 2005, especially when I was Up All Night sick. Gary has inspired a substantial amount of the songwriting that I have done since 2008 from Take That and Party to Beautiful World and from Open Road to Progress. Now fifteen, my health couldn't be better, and I am definitely Happy Now. It's great that you're donating these lyrics, Gary; you and the rest of TT have helped me a lot, and now you’re helping other people who are in the same Wooden Boat I used to be in all those years ago. Thank you so much, Gary, Howard, Jason, Mark and Robbie, I will Never Forget what you have done for me! By the way, I love Progress; I think it is an extremely brave but brilliant album. Both the album and The Flood for No. 1 this week!!!

    My beautiful 16 year old daughter Lucy has just been diagnosed with a rare childhood cancer, our whole world has fallen apart. We have received so much help and support from the Teenage Cancer Trust and also the YOU ward at Christies in Manchester. Well done Gary, much more needs to be done in funding and awareness about childhood/teen cancer. My cousin Joanne is the biggest TT fan - she has just emailed me to tell me about your donation! xx xx

    Gary, my mother died of breast cancer 2 years ago and was very painful to see how all people suffer with this disease, especially if you do not have the resources to detect and treat early. I think it's very noble of you to participate in these events, helping those who depend on those like you are at the service of the needy. I pray to God that someone will find a cure soon. thanks for your actions and your good heart. Needless to say but you're an excellent singer and songwriter. kisses for de 5 from Argentina. Flor*-

    We all know that he has a great heart, he is always thinking about those who have less than us or suffering a pain. I think that if the world had more "GAZ " it would be a better place. I admire him not only as a songwriter or a singer but a excellente person he is. THANK YOU.
