Weʼve raised £81,735 to Get Keith On His Feet
- Funded on Monday, 31st December 2018
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.
Update on the incredibly sad story below.
Your amazing generosity has allowed us to fly keith home via air ambulance.
Keith is now in The James Cook spinal care unit in Middlesbourgh and has just managed to have his first few days in a wheelchair.
Keith will now begin his rehabilitation in earnest and we all know it will be a long road ahead.
Keith still has no use of his legs but does have some feeling when tested so we remain hopeful and positive that these signs will lead eventually to him being back on his feet. His arms move but his hands have extreemly limited use so thats also a big part of the rehab process.
Its only an estimate but keith will be in hospital for between 6 and 12 months. During this time the process of integrating him back into his family life will begin with weekends at home as soon as possible.
We will continue to raise funds for keith and his family for many years ahead and will do all we can to allow them to live as normal a life as possible.
Its still early days so much of this update may change so for now we are focussed on keiths progress and the beautiful memories they will create with their boys and our help.
Huge thanks and grattitude to everyone that has contributed so far, you have made a mass
ive difference in their confidence to cope with these challenging circimstances ❤️❤️
This is an urgent appeal to raise funds for our friend Keith Dungait.
Sadly on Thursday 5th July, whilst on holiday with friends, Keith innocently dived into the Hotel pool and hit his head on the bottom. A moment that took just seconds has left Keith in a critical condition with 5 fractures in his back and without the use of his legs.
Keith’s wife Christina is by his side in Spain along with his parents, whilst his two sons, Ronnie (7) and Makaulay (5) are at home with their family.
Keith’s family know there is a long road ahead, and we hope that the funds we raise through this appeal will help make that rehabilitation possible and get Keith back on his feet!
Your donations will help cover medical bills, potentially allow Keith to be flown back to the UK and we hope to raise enough to help Keith begin his road to recovery.
Your kind donations will truely make a difference and help this young family get through this terrible time.

This sort of situation is so difficult to deal with. Just know there are people out there who are thinking of your family and are glad to help. Hopefully it will lighten the load.
Great people make things happen
