£550raised of £500 target by 37 supporters

    Weʼve raised £550 to help Dave achieve his target of £40,000 for medical treatment and ongoing support for his CRPS condition.

    Funded on Friday, 6th October 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.


    My name is Keith Ashcroft and on Saturday 12th August 2017 I will be covering 241km (150 miles) in one day completing the Coast to Coast bike ride to raise funds for my mate Dave Makin.
    I will be cycling from the North West Coast of Blackpool to North East Coast of Scarborough

    I've known Dave Makin for 5 years when we met through Orrell St James rugby club where our sons played on the same team.  We have become close mates both sharing a passion for rugby.

    3 years ago Dave was diagnosed with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) following knee reconstruction. CRPS is a very rare condition that usually develops after an injury to an arm or leg, with the primary symptom being severe, prolonged pain in the affected area. When it persists beyond 6-8 months it usually develops into a lifelong chronic debilitating condition, with the only prescribed treatment being high-strength pain killers - in Dave’s case this is 54 pills every day.

    Dave is now 31 years old, and has recently made a life-changing decision to have his full right leg amputated. Dave sees amputation as the only way forward to try and gain his life back

    Daves medical bills are expected to run into tens of thousands and his friends and family are aiming to raise money to help him through this time.

    If you’re able to help me to help Dave please donate here, everything that is raised will go direct to giving Dave his life back. Thank you

      Hopefully everyone has seen that myself and Sam completed the blackpool to Scarborough coast to coast on Saturday 12th August. It was a challenging ride with rain, mud, hills, closed roads and 1 puncture! Personally it was a great achievement and made all the more special as it also allowed me to support a great friend who hasnt had it easy for the last couple of years. Hopefully Dave has turned the corner but still has a long road ahead of him and all the money raised will help with his rehabilitation.
