On 19th October 2018 my dads boat got into an accident on it’s way out to sea from Littlehampton habour

and inevitably resulted in the boat sinking. My dad is absolutely heart broken and not to mention how close he came to death doesn’t bare thinking about. He required the help of Lee-on-Solent coast helicopter, the Littlehampton RNLI and local ambulance/ police crews. This was his livelihood, his only source of income and his pride and joy. He has lost everything from his phone to thousands and thousands of pounds worth of fishing gear. I am asking if anyone can donate as little or as much as they like to help my dad get back on his feet. I understand he is not a charity but he needs as much help as he can get right now. However much I raise will be deeply appreciated.

    Good luck in your recovery. I live locally and small business boats are essential for this community.
