The Brighton based musician, known by fans as Monty Oxymoron, will greet visitors to the Chestnut Tree House shop at 40 London Road, Brighton today (Monday, December 9) from midday.

The charity CD is the result of a collaboration between fellow damned musician Captain Sensible, real name Raymond Ian Burns, and Lewes author John Henty, of Grange Road.

John said: “It’s great that a Sussex charity will benefit this time round. The colourful CDs only cost a fiver and are available now in all ChestnutTree House shops.”

This new CD, about the further adventures of Cheshire the Cheese-loving Bear, will be read in verse by Captain Sensible with music from Monty Oxymoron.

John Henty has written this story with the help of illustrator Peter Webster and The Damned musicians.

Proceeds will go to Chestnut Tree House, the children’s hospice for Sussex and South East Hampshire.

CDs are on sale for £5 and can be bought from Chestnut Tree House shops, the locations of which can be found here.
