Weʼre raising £1,000 to Assist a colleague that has had an illness with life changing consequences.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
This is Paul Copper,
He's just turned 50.
Paul has been a Firefighter and Watch Manager for over 25 years. Many of us have had the pleasure of working alongside him. He is very much loved and by his family, friends and the countless firefighters he has worked with over the years, both in Essex and Hertfordshire.
Paul contracted sepsis, a rare but potentially deadly infection, which has quickly attacked his organs including his brain.
He is currently living with his father with the support of his sister The prognosis for Paul is not good, but he will fight.
This Just Giving page has been set up to help, in some small way, with the things Paul will need during his recovery and for the rest of his life. Donations, no matter how small all add up, so please, lets give him the best chance we can, you know he would for you.
All donations will go to Paul's family to use as they see fit.
