Tony Hart has lost the use of his hands and can no longer use his studio. Generations of us grew up with Tony, waiting weekly to see if our abstract scribbles were given the highest accolade of all and put up in the 'Gallery' section of Tony's programme.
As I was going through my cubist period my work was vastly misunderstood but I bear no grudge, none whatsoever, only loving memories of Tony, the Gallery music, Morph and the scally that was Chaz.
Tony also served as officer in the 1st Gurkha Rifles in World War II.
In light of this and being inspirational to thousands of children over the years, wouldn't it be fair and just to see his contributions to society recognised?
