  • Forum help needed asap
    Hi folks,
    one of our friends is in a bad way at the moment after suffering an heart attack and undergoing major heart surgery, John is a very good friend of me and my wife and is also my wifes employer at the moment, ( my wife cleans apartments for him ), John at the moment is on his own and because of the severity of his illness needs constant care and attention, because of this I am trying to organise a charity event that would raise enough money to pay for Johns girlfriend to fly over from the UK and stay with him awhile untill things pick up for him, I am not asking for a fortune just enough to get her airfare so she can be with John for a few weeks untill he is well enough to cope on his own, the event will be in the Blarney stone in playa de la arena on an afternoon from around 1pm onwards, the exact date will be arranged within the next few days, I need local artists who can spare 15-20 minutes of their time to perform and also anyone who can donate raffle prizes to raise the money we need for John to have the care he needs, so cmon folks this is a friend who is in need of our help anyone who can help us out please PM me as soon as possible, we are desperate for your help.

  • Hi everyone
    Don't want to sound suspicious but, does anyone know this john farmer?????
    I mean to say, jesseegaron your wife works for him, so he has his own business, here in tenerife.
    (where we still don't know) and you are telling us that he can not afford a 75 pond one way ticket.
    Now come on, something just does not add up here.
    Also jessegaron Ive been coming to los gigantes for years and years with my husband and family
    and we have never heard of you!!!!!!!!!!, we were in the bamboo bar last night and asked some people if  they had heard of you and they all said no.
    Where do you sing around the los gigantes area so we can come and listen to you.

  • Here we go again, June Mc Cloud sticking the boot in. In spite of what you think there are some really nice people out there, who try to do good either for other human beings or animals, and the fact that you haven't heard of them means nothing.
    Perhaps you should see if there is something you could do for someone else in trouble other than be spiteful and nasty, you may find it fullfilling.

  • OH here we go!!! Same people who got their panties in a tangle on the Dingo Dogs thread at it again. Don't you ever learn, or  get sick of being nasty minded and suspicious?

    *SIGH* Dolly would not allow Jesse to post such things if she did not know of him.

    Here, to put your nasty minds at rest:

  • What a nasty piece of (uninformed) work that June Mcloud appears to be.
    Does anyone on here actually know her personally? I would like to visit her and give her a piece of my mind face to face.

    My Wife works for John by cleaning his apartment, that is what she does for a living, john has no money has he is too ill to work and no means of getting money from anywhere, i put this up to help a friend in need which is what i believe most people do in a friendship, i work in TJs bar in Los Gigantes, every thursday and have done for two years now, you are welcome to come and see my show just dont introduce yourself after what you say in your post about something not adding up, you might not like what i have to say to you. Jesse. P.S Almost everyone in the bamboo bar knows me i drink there regularly.

    maybe you have a personel vendetta against dingo dogs as you will know i have just taken over as vice president or maybe you just dont like charitys full stop, thats your choice and you are welcome to it but dont start opening up an hornets nest untill you get your facts right, the dingos dog thread should have taught you that but obviously not.

  • I've seen Jesse Garon at TJ's, The Playa Arena Hotel, and do the occassional song at the Blarney Stone. Not only is he a good act but both he and his wife are very nice people. They do not deserve the caustic comments of pathetic illinformed people like June Mcloud, and i should sincerely hope there will be an apology from her on this site in the not too distant future. Good luck with day at the Blarney Stone hope it goes well.

  • None of you have answered the question who is john farmer . You connot expect people to go along to a charity for someone they  dont know . I think if you posted a photo and some information on john then you might get mor people involved . I dont know the name john farmer but i might know him to look at .

  • My 10 pence worth.....

    I can understand where June is coming from, and I know of Jesse, although never met him personally.

    There is a tendancy on the Island for friends to look out for friends, much more so than back in the UK.  However, there was an incident a while back which really got my back up.  It was on another forum not here, but very similar.

    The thread title was along the lines of "Charity Fundraiser", and as time progressed contributors began to ask what charity the event was in aid of.  It eventually turned out that it was a benefit night for an entertainer's hip replacement !!

    The point here is that there is a world of difference between "Charity" and "Benefit" - exactly the same as in this case.  Dingo Dogs is a "charity" which does what it does, and presumably does it well.  John Farmer is not a charity and a lot of people wouldn't know him from Adam.  He may well have problems and those close to him like Jessie may well want to try to help.  That is as applaudable as fund-raising for Dingo Dogs or any other charity, but it is not a charity night.

    June's views over time have been "interesting", but she is correct, one moment the event is described as a Charity Night, the next as a Benefit Night - had this been fully clarified in the original post and full details given it would have removed any trace of suspicion at the outset. 

    In my example earlier, whilst I might feel inclined to support someone who has genuinly fallen on hard times, or feed a few animals for a month, I am "stuffed" if I am going to help pay for, for example, somebody's new hip joint.

    Moral of the tale.  Explain everything at the outset, tell it like it really is, then hope for the best!!!!!!.

  • OK folks i can understand that i may have got the wording wrong by saying charity event, but my original post says exactly what the event is in aid of,i'm not trying to hide anything  (raise enough money to pay for Johns girlfriend to fly over from the UK and stay with him awhile untill things pick up for him, I am not asking for a fortune just enough to get her airfare so she can be with John for a few weeks untill he is well enough to cope on his own,)   people can make up their own minds as to wether they want to donate or not, i am not forcing anyone to do anything, if your not interested in helping out then leave it at that, no need to come on here questioning my integrity,

  •  :-\\ maybe we should do a collection here in uk for her..... :-\\
    what an extremely odd situation.... has she no means of purchasing her own ticket, and, when she does arrive, will she need bus money from the airport?  also, what about cost of living upon arrival........?

  • Johns Girlfriend has been over twice while he spent three weeks in hospital so her finances have run out, obviously people want to question everything anyone tries to do on here, fair enough thats your perrogotive but here is no need for snide remarks, June i apologise if i came across as a bit harsh to your original post about this but your post seemed a bit harsh to me also, maybe we both jumped the gun a bit too quick and again i apologise, I am trying to help a friend in need and i thought that this forum could help me highlight that obviously i was wrong, so anyone reading this who dont want to help for whatever reason ignore it i will do this on my own, thanks again to the people who have offered your support it is much appreciated, Jesse.


    Mods can this thread be closed now please we dont want another dingos dogs hornets nest.
