£695raised of £1,000 target by 19 supporters

    Weʼve raised £695 to help fund new and suitable equipment for Chris Toon and air ambulance

    Derby, United Kingdom
    Funded on Friday, 10th November 2017

    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.


    On the morning of Sunday the 12th November 2017 I will be running the Derby 10 Mile. Two things I hate doing, running and being awake on Sunday mornings.
    Why you may ask yourself? Well for two reasons!

    Firstly, On the 11th June a friend of mine required the services of the air ambulance due to a motorcycle accident. Within 10 minutes they were on the scene saving Chris's life.

    Currently the Air Ambulance Service is funded solely by charity donations. As a thank you to them for providing a critical service to my friend and to society as a whole i will be giving up a Sunday morning to run around Derby.

    Secondly, Chris will need all the help and support as he gets ready for the challenges ahead of him.

    Your donation will be split 50 50 between air ambulance service and providing practical support for Chris

    May thanks for your time and donation

        I am very sorry about Chris Toon's accident. As a biker and learner saxophone player, I wish him a speedy recovery to as much of the normality of his life as possible.
