£975raised of £75,000 target by 32 supporters

    Weʼve raised £975 to help a veteran who is a double amputee to fulfil his ambition and race at Le Mans

    Funded on Sunday, 19th August 2018

    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.


    Hi everyone, guess what, my sponsor has unfortunately had to pull out at the last second ouch. Plans have been set to race in the Britcar Endurance Championship however, lack of funds as a result make this impossible. I don’t believe in impossible.

    I am the first double amputee to race in a standard race car, no modifications, I am fast and compete with the best.

    My target is Le Mans 24 Hour Race in 2022/23, this is not just about me, it’s about showing that a wounded solder or indeed anyone can achieve a dream. So far, the dream has been achievable, I just need a nudge.

    Over eight years I have honed my skills and have coached several race drivers, this without legs, imagine 😀

    As a wounded war veteran I had a choice, one of which is racing, it has always been in my blood. I had a goal, something I could grab hold of and aim for.

    I have succeeded to this point.

    Now I need some assistance, when I say some, my sponsor was paying race car hire, preparation and race fees.

    Every little helps, I will be creating a funding site in the next few days, target is £75,000.00.

    In the meantime, if you can help in any way please contact me, email address below.

    By the way, the first race is April 14th at Rockingham, testing will be the day before.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
