    Story

    All his life my brother Kevin has been obsessed with cars and bikes, he had the biggest collection ever as a kid and god help anyone who touched them!! So really it was no surprise that he learnt to be a mechanic straight after school!

    Since then he has worked so hard to build up his own business. A life times collection of tools has been collected to do every little job for his customers (and there were so many!!), and because of his passion for the job he has built a large loyal customer base.

    Unfortunately there was a fire at his garage last week which started with both him and my dad inside. Luckily they were both out safe and sound however that fire has completely destroyed everything, lots of personal belongings and everything he has worked so hard for over the years gone in a matter of minuets. My poor brother had to stand by and watch his life burn to the ground and there was nothing he could do despite trying.

    Anyone that knows my brother will know just how much his work means to him not only because he loves what he does but so that he can provide a good life for his daughters which is why I want to help him.

    Unfortunatley insurance will not cover his tools and equipment, so if everyone could just give a few quid I'm hoping that we can get enough money together to help him replace enough tools to start up again. How ever much you can spare will be enough to buy something.

    Many thanks for taking the time to read my story. Every little helps so i think you so much for your donation. Please feel free to share!

    I’m Helen, this is for my brother. He is my rock and I love him dearly which is why this whole situation breaks my heart as much as his. I’m so very proud of Kevin for everything he has achieved and I just want to do everything I can to help him and his family
