Weʼre raising £1,100 to Help Bettina Hayles cover the cost of recovering her truck & repairs to farmers fence, after she was run off the road by a dangerous driver
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.
Please Help Bettina Hayles to get her truck back on the road again. Last week she was run off the road by a car dangerously overtaking her truck. It was heading straight for a landrover, and then had to swerve back into her, to avoid a head on collision. Fortunately no one was hurt, but the driver didn't stop and left Bettina and her truck on their side down a shear 10ft drop in a field. The landrover driver pulled Bettina free, who was badly shaken up. She couldn't believe she walked away from an accident like this with just a few scratches. The truck didn't come off so well, there are mechanical repairs to be made and the inside totally needs rebuilding.
Bettina can't claim on her insurace as it would be a right off and they wont let her buy her truck back to fix up again. So she is left with not only her truck no longer road worthy and the inside smashed up, she has also had an £850 bill, to pay for recovering her truck from the field, to somewhere safe where she can start to rebuild it, plus the cost of repairing the farmers fence.
If you can spare a few pounds together we can help Bettina cover these costs and get her and her truck back on the road, where she belongs. The memory of the accident will never leave her, but with our help at least she can get back to normal and wait for this all to become a distant memory.

The only people ever to help me when in need on the roadside have been other travellers, so hope this helps and good luck.
