    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    What can you say about Chris..... he's a truly amazing, happy, funny, loving guy. His life revolves around his friends and more importantly his family. Vicky and the kids will be going through hell at the minute wanting their partner and daddy back along with all his family.
    But for the time being he has a little fight he must overcome to get himself better.

    Being a friend for many years I have grown to love him like a brother and I'm sure you all feel the same way, he has that affect on you. As with most of the population he doesn't have an abundance of riches, but he works an honest job to put a roof over his loved ones heads and food on the table.

    Now fate doesn't care what happens in such cases of illness or injury. The people who care are the friends, relatives.... the people who feel the pain, and see the hardship that such tragic events cause. They are the ones that care.

    I'm not here to beg or plead. I'm here to ask you please if you can, spare whatever you can afford to donate. Every little bit will help, to pay bills or childcare or whatever is needed to get through each day and be able to be next to his bedside..... for that very moment he wakes up. To see them sparkling eyes, for him to see all his family once again..... To just help one of if not the nicest &
    special humans to ever walk this planet. Whatever way, in however small part this may help to elleviate some pressure this amazing family is under.

    Chris sadly had a fall a few days ago, he's suffered a really serious injury that's needed neurosurgery. He has a long road ahead of him. Once you've met Chris Kelsall.... you never forget him. If you can't afford to donate a little that's perfectly fine.... say a prayer for him instead.
    Thanks and one day.... he will thank you too for being there when he needed us the most x

      Hi all just to update you on the progress Chris has made. He's been awake now quite a lot and has had the tracheotomy removed. He's managed to walk aided to the toilet and has had a few smiles to give and shown that he's fighting this.... Sadly at present he's yet to speak properly and is suffering memory loss but in time we hope he's going recover each of these faculties. Thanks again to everyone for their support. You've been amazing and all being well Chris is on his way to a miraculous recovery.... no matter how long it may take him x

      Hi all many many thanks for your generosity and kind words. Just an update on chris he's been awake today and has acknowledged family members he's still not spoken or anything like that but he's come to. He's made massive strides in the last few days. Think he's heard our prayers and is fighting this like we knew he would. Still a long way to go but these first few steps have been encouraging and filled us all with hope. I'd like to pass on my sincere thanks from vicky and her family. They are ever so grateful of your kindness and love. X
