MAX BYGRAVES's Daughter has appealed for fans to send him postcards because walking to collect mail is one of his few remaining pleasures as he battles Alzheimer's Disease.
The 89-year-old singer and comedian makes a daily walk to the letter box at Christine Green's home and would love to receive cards with messages from well-wishers which can be sent to .......

To be honest I'm not sure that this article would even have registered with me a few years ago but I'm posting it today for two very personal reasons.
The first being that whenever I hear the name Max Bygraves mentioned I always think of Husband dearest's nana (Peggy) who is sadly no longer with us. To be found cooking the Sunday dinner every week, Max was often to be heard crooning away in the background, Peggy singing along with him.
The second reason, alas not such a happy one, our lives were recently touched with the cruel condition that is Dementia and so it is only now that I probably fully appreciate just how such a small thing as receiving a postcard can mean to someone so come on everyone please join me in sending a card to Max.
