    Weʼve raised £72,420 to get Danny into a neuro-rehabilitation centre for treatment

    Funded on Sunday, 13th November 2022

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    As you may know Danny sustained a serious head injury in August this year. This resulted in a bleed on the brain that required immediate surgery. Thankfully the operation was successful and since then he has been recovering in hospital.

    Danny now urgently needs to begin specialist treatment in a neuro-rehabilitation centre but due to current waiting lists this is proving to be difficult. In light of this we are hoping to send him to a private unit where he can receive the kind of help that will give him the greatest possible opportunity to make a full recovery. Obviously there are considerable costs involved but given the situation we feel we have to try and do everything we can to make this happen. We’re also not too proud to say we are going to need some help.

    To that end we have set up a JustGiving Fundraising page and we’d like to ask you to consider making a contribution to help our friend and bandmate.

    No matter how small, all donations will have a positive impact.

    We would like to contact you afterwards to say thank you so please make sure you tick the box to share your contact details with us.

    You can also donate anonymously if you so wish.

    Please note after you decide on your donation there will be a default “15%” contribution applied that goes directly to the JustGiving platform. You can change this setting using the dropdown box, selecting “Other” and entering an amount you are comfortable with, anything from £0.00 upwards.

    Danny and the rest of us want you all to know how much your support means to us and he’s asked us to say thanks a million in advance.

    Massive thanks from us too!

    Ben, Chris, Harry & Luke.


    Dear All,

    We are beyond flabbergasted at the overwhelming generosity you have shown Danny, his family and the band and we want to say a massive and heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone that has made a donation!

    You collectively managed to smash through our target amount in less than 48 hours - UNBELIEVABLE!

    We are truly humbled by your kindness and you have confirmed what we already knew - THUNDER FANS ARE THE BEST!!

    Just Giving’s terms state that we have to keep this fundraising page open for a minimum of one month so we wanted you to know that once Danny’s treatment is complete we will donate all remaining monies to Air Ambulance Charity for Kent, Surrey & Sussex charity.

    They helped save Danny’s life and we’d like to help them do the same for other people in similar situations.

    Once again THANK YOU! You have made a real difference to Danny’s recovery and we will be eternally grateful!

    Ben, Chris, Harry & Luke.


    We have been in touch with the Operational Team at South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust. One of the paramedics that treated Danny immediately after his injury has confirmed to us that it was in fact the Air Ambulance Charity for Kent, Surrey & Sussex that attended to Danny, not London’s Air Ambulance as we’d first thought.

    Alongside the incredible members of the South East Coast Ambulance Service, they were crucial in saving Danny's life. In light of this we feel it is only right to make the donation to AACKS ( in thanks for their amazing help and we would like to apologise for any confusion caused.

    Thank you all again for everything you have donated so generously over the past few days. It has made us even prouder of our fans than we were already!

    L, C, B, H, D

      I’ve had many great nights watching Thunder over the years and you’ve always been willing to chat with me at the meet and greets after. I hope my small contribution will help towards your recovery.
