£24,083raised of £10,000 target by 469 supporters

Weʼre raising £10,000 to help our inspirational friend, Martin Hibbert and his daughter Eve who suffered life changing injuries in the Manchester terror attack

Manchester, United Kingdom
10 days to go

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.


Our friend Martin and his daughter Eve suffered horrific and life changing injuries in the recent Manchester Arena attack. They were 10 metres away from the bomb when it detonated. Martin suffered 22 shrapnel wounds from the nuts and bolts from the explosion, which basically entered his body from head to toe. One of the bolts entered through his neck, destroyed a main artery and then passed through his throat, at which point he swallowed it. He needed 16 pints of blood before he reached the intensive care unit and has had several long operations to remove the shrapnel and at first they didn’t think he was going to survive.

The bolt that caused the most damage lodged in his spine and has left him with a T10 spinal injury which means he is now paralysed from the waist down. He was in the trauma unit at Salford Royal until the end of June and was then in a spinal rehab centre in Southport where he was until the end of September.

Martin has been busy putting his story out there in the media with a series of moving and inspirational articles, such as this one published in The Times. You may also have seen him on the very moving ITV documentary 'Manchester: 100 Days After the Attack',


We are raising funds for Martin and Eve to help support the massive changes that will be needed to their lives going forward through a series of events:


The team from Helios Medical Communications will be taking part in Tough Mudder at Belvoir Castle, Grantham on Saturday 12 May 2018 and they have kindly agreed to donate all proceeds raised to Martin and Eve. We will be posting updates on training and appreciate any support you can provide leading up to the event.


A fantastic team of friends and family will be running the Manchester 10K on Sunday 20 May 2018. Those running are:

Lee Kibble, Katherine Kibble, Emily Reynard, Tom Reynard , Georgie Shears , Richard Shears , Hilary Minnock , John McCarthy , Jennie Oliver , Nancy Merrick, Alison Carlin , Georgia Harrison , Clara Greenwood , Maxine McMahon , Karen Young , Rebecca O'Malley

Martin himself will also be taking part in the race in his wheelchair which is an inspiring and amazing achievement 1 year on!!!

Please support this fabulous team of people to get us over that finish line.
