Weʼre raising £5,000 to Support Stephen Eccles and his family

What is crowdfunding?

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.


Stephen attended urgent care at Shotley Bridge Hospital Friday 10th August with severe head pain and impaired vision. Following some test and after seeing an optician he was referred to the RVI for further investigation. On Saturday 11th August the devastating news was delivered that he has a brain tumour which requires immediate attention. Stephen has been booked in for surgery on Thursday 16th August 2018. This means he can no longer be the singing taxi driver we've all known and loved for 26 years until he has recovered and at this point we are unsure how long that recovery will take.

As Stephen is self employed and the sole earner for his wife and children this will impact the family hard, any support that is given will help this fabulous family through Stephen's treatment and also the treatment of his newest son Benjamin who is also in hospital awaiting his second heart operation.

We appreciate any donation, no matter how small, to help them through such a difficult time.
