Rat Boy has announced he’s raising money for both the Alzheimer’s Society and MIND.
“My mother has been suffering with dementia and psychosis for the last few years,” he explains, “and it’s such a heartbreaking illness.”
His fundraising efforts will include a £5 guestlist for his upcoming tours, and selling merch donned with his mother’s paintings and drawings.
