- Man down – STW help needed
A riding friend of mine has been involved in an horrific accident whilst out in his bike. He’s currently in a coma and we’ve no idea what the long term prognosis is. He’s self employed and has 2 daughters that could do with some financial support in the short term. If anyone can chip in a £ or 2 it would be very much appreciated. Thanks 👍
I’ve dropped a tenner in the pot. Thoughts and prayers of strangers are all very well, but I reckon cash is more useful at this juncture.Posted 11 months ago
Thank you very much 👍Posted 11 months ago

Blimey :-(. Donated.Posted 11 months ago

As a self employed person prone to doing stupid stuff on a bike without a care in the world I can really appreciate the way this may pan out. Donation made and healing vibes for a rapid return to some form of normality sent.Posted 11 months ago
Tenner in the pot……Posted 11 months ago
Much appreciated 👍Posted 11 months ago
I’ve put some money in too for two reasons.
I asked to raise some money on here for a worthy cause a couple of years ago and was greatly supported by strangers.
A truly humbling experience.
And because there but because of the grace of God go I.
I hope this chap recovers.Posted 11 months ago
Cheers Merak – you’re absolutely right, the kindness of strangers is truly humbling and STW is at it’s best when pulling together to help. Thanks all once again 🙂
I know the justgiving page is a bit light on detail, that’s largely because he was on his own when the accident happened so we don’t fully know what has happened as yet.Posted 11 months ago
