Weʼre raising £5,000 to help with £14,000 repatriation costs incurred from hospital in Sweden to Addenbrooke's in the UK

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.
I am fundraising to help my friends, Chris, Sue and Jamie North. Chris and Jamie were on a holiday in Sweden when they came off their motorbike. Jamie broke his leg, but Chris was severely injured and broke his neck, various ribs and injured his spine.
Chris had an operation on his neck in Sweden and has no feeling from his waist down. He also has no movement in his right arm, limited movement in his left arm and can't use any of his fingers.
There was a complication trying to get him transported from the hospital in Sweden to Addenbrooke's in the UK as the insurance company did not want to pay for it. Sue has had to rely on a friend and family to pay the £14,000 needed to get him back in the UK. On top of that her friend also paid for them getting to Sweden, accomodation for a few days and for them to take Jamie back to the UK as well.
The outlook for Chris is also uncertain and currently he is expected to be transferred to the Spinal Injury unit of the Stoke Mandeville hospital in the near future for further treatment. This will mean that Sue and Jamie will incur even more expenses each time they want to visit him.

Hello Everyone, We have just told Chris today about the fundraising and he has now read all your messages. He was overwhelmed and speechless, but wanted to let you know that he is grateful and moved with all your kind donations and support. The total amount currently raised is £3,618 which is fantastic. A big thank you to all of you. Jacqueline
