Weʼve raised £6,170 to Get Scunner Out the House
- Dunfermline, UK
- Funded on Monday, 17th September 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.
Up until July 2016 Stuart Campbell, “Scunner“ to his friends, was a highly active 50 something year old. He was still regularly coaching youth teams and playing 2nd XV rugby for Dunfermline Rugby Club, was an instructor in the 1980’s with 1145 squadron of the Air Training Corp, he was previously a manager with Bells Distillers in Dunfermline and thereafter a manager and trainer with Sky also in Dunfermline, ran his own business and on top of that he was a devoted husband to Sue as well as a Father. He was a popular and well known figure about Dunfermline who was always willing to spare 5 minutes to chat with anyone, invariably over a pint of Best!!!
Then, without warning, in July of 2016 Stuart suffered a massive stroke and heart attack, it was so severe that Doctors gave him only a matter of days to live. Against all odds, and due in no small measure to his stubborness, Stuart managed to pull through, and as such has somewhat baffled the medical profession!!!!
However, things haven’t been easy for Stuart and Sue since then. He has been cared for in a number of establishments and only this year he has moved home. Despite this Stuart is still unable to walk and relies heavily on his carers and indeed Sue to help with basic every day needs. Unfortunately Stuart and Sue’s house needs considerable alteration. These alterations would make life so much easier for them, even in terms of Stuart getting out, he hasn‘t left the house in months.
Sue has been quoted £25,000 for all the alterations, she has received funding for 80% of that. As Stuart‘s friends we are trying to help her raise the extra £5,000.
Thanks in advance
Neil Harris, Graeme McLaren and Roy Smith
