During Sept & Oct 2021 folk rock musician Jake Newby teamed up with Scorpio Promotions to take part in the Great British Coffee Shop tour, hosting live music events around England & Wales. Sadly half way into the tour an incident took place which cause the loss of half of the funds - to make this an even more bitter pill to swallow these funds were the half raised for Scorpio Promotions, which unlike the rest of the funds doesnt go on costs but is instead donated to a local charity that we support.
The total loss was only around £200 but this means alot to the small independent charity and we would love to recoup that money. In addition tour manager Ian's bank card was used but we believe this will be sorted by Police action.
We would also like to make clear this didnt happen at any venue on the tour, and the venue where it did happen have played no part in the theft and were just as upset as us when they found out the ultimate destination for the money
