Black Sabbath legend at fundraiser in memory of a tragic Midland teenager killed in a road crash

 

Tony Iommi was a guest at a fundraiser organised to boost funds for the Mikey Abdou Foundation.

The charity aims to help underprivileged children in education in memory of the 19-year-old Solihull doctor’s son. Mikey Abdou and his friend Mike Dugmore were killed in a car crash in Aston Cantlow in January 2012. It will also help youngsters in Cairo as Mikey was part-Egyptian. Tony Iommi is a friend of the Abdou family.

The sell-out fundraiser, held at Hogarths Hotel in Dorridge, attracted 200 guests and raised more than £50,000.

“We were extremely grateful that Tony Iommi could be there to support the cause. Tony is a great friend of the family and again we were very fortunate and honoured to have him there." - states the Abdou family.
