raised of £200 target by 6 supporters

    Weʼve raised £245 to To help pay for a service for Jack Pilkington's bicycle after he was assaulted in the street, and had his jaw broken

    Funded on Tuesday, 4th April 2017

    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 nonprofit.

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


    Jack Pilkington was taking pictures of the derelict Royal Mail Sorting Office by Temple Meads for a school project when he was punched in the face by a man.

    Despite his injury, the 16-year-old cycled to the Bristol Royal Infirmary for treatment, after being helped by a passing cyclist.

    But while he was in hospital his mum believed his bicycle had been stolen.

    Fortunately Jack's bike has now been recovered but as it was not in the best condition to begin with his mum has said she will get it serviced.

    As Jack has been through so much, and people were so eager to donate to buy him a new bike when they thought his had been stolen we agreed to ask if anyone would be kind enough to help Jack's mum pay for a really high standard of bike service, instead of the basic service (£200 is the minimum you can set your target).

        I work in the BRI and met this young man, seemed like a nice person, and quite shocked at what had happened. It'd be nice to think he could get his bike serviced.
