£1,105raised of £500 target by 52 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,105 to help fund Juliet and Jack to stay in accommodation at Southampton General Hospital to remain beside Tom who is in critical condition.

    Funded on Wednesday, 30th November 2016

    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.


    On Sunday 23rd October there was a horrible accident on Lindsay Road, Poole between a Motorbike and Car. The rider of the motorbike sadly died and Tom remains in life critical condition at Southampton Hospital.

    Tom is the older brother of one of my U15 Dexter Sports players and club captain Jack, his mum Juliet is always present at our games giving support and for a little person she does make a lot of noise. The news of this accident has rocked our team togetherness, and we are all offering support to them at this time. They have become very close friends of mine in recent years.

    I learnt recently that because Tom is classed as an adult Juliet and Jack are having to pay £28 per night to remain by Tom's side.

    I have setup this Just Giving Crowd Fund page to appeal to anyone willing to donate whatever they can to cover the accommodation costs. Juliet & Jack shouldn't have to be out of pocket to remain beside Tom when he needs them the most.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this.

    Kindest Regards,

    Matt Belben

      Day 10 - Still continuing to get donations, and all I can say is a big thanks to all involved! Had some really nice emails from people and also being contacted by the press. Spoke to Juliet yesterday and still no change currently but we all continue to keep everything crossed for Tom. Remember the money we raise is also going to help support Tom in the future so let's keep these coming in. It's Jack's birthday today so happy birthday to Jack also.

      Day 5, we have smashed through £1000 for the family, adding a few more days worth of accommodation. I still think we have more in the tank, remember that this is an ideal way for you to do something to make a difference. Thanks for all the kind words I have got for getting this setup allowing us all to make a difference. Keep fighting Tom, look forward to getting an update on how you are over the weekend.
