Peaceville Records Founder Hammy Halmshaw Diagnosed With Terminal Heart Disease, Crowdfunding Campaign Launched


Peaceville Records founder Paul “Hammy” Halmshaw has fallen on hard times during the COVID-19 pandemic, having been diagnosed with a terminal heart disease. He said of his condition, “After a life in music I became seriously ill in lockdown. I found out I had hereditary dilated cardiomyopathy which is terminal.”

The illness has left him disabled and as such, this Justgiving campaign has been launched to help him fund £10,000 for a ground floor disabled access bathroom and bedroom.
