Story

We're trying to raise some funds to help James keep his business afloat whilst he undergoes Chemo treatment for cancer diagnosed in August.

Running a business can be tough at the best of times. James has spent so much time and dedication over the past 3 years setting up his business of hydrographics, vehicle wrapping, painting services and car body restorations.

James is currently unable to operate his business to its full potential and it currently runs at a very limited service due to the restrictions of his illness - working in a dirty environment, exposure to chemicals etc. Crazily, because of his employment status, he is not eligible for Employment Support Allowance or Sick Pay. This means once he has beaten cancer (and he will) he may not have a business to operate, to earn a living again for him, his wife Paula and two young children Hannah and Lewis.

My request is simple - please help us raise enough funds so James can keep on top of his unit rent and business overheads, so when he slams the cancer in the face (and he will) and is fighting fit again, he has a business and job he loves to go back to.

How horrible it would be to win the battle against cancer but to lose your busniess in the process.

There are not many businesses around that do what James can do - I urge you to check out his FB page and website - I don't quite get how he does it, but it's really quite impressive!

Bold Hydrographics Ltd - www.boldhydro.co.uk

Thank you for taking the time to read my request, and I hope you will keep everything crossed that James is back to full health again soon!

    James has been a friend for 21 years - it was with a little help from him that I got to know Ben :) Back in the day, we spent many crazy, fun times together along with his wife Paula. James helped us when we set our business up with contacts, this is me returning the favour! X
