Les’s second Grandson, Dominic, was born in September and has followed his Grandfather into the music industry, working in the family business and managing various artists.

Les and Roger Cook were approached by The Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson, to compose a song for her charity “Children In Crisis”. The song, “Shine a Light”, was recorded by ex-Blue Mink members, Madeline Bell and Roger Cook, and performed at the launch of the Shine a Light/Children In Crisis charity, in the presence of The Duchess of York and other luminaries.
