raised of £5,000 target by 131 supporters

    Weʼve raised £5,440 to Help Mike Turner, who is recovering from serious complications after an op. To keep his business dreams alive & to offer his family support.

    Saltash, United Kingdom
    Funded on Tuesday, 8th August 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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Mike has raised the bar when it comes to networking, creating connections & promoting the city of Plymouth, his networking family & for fundraising for charities.

    He's created a business that revolves around his personality, his network & fantastic ability to enthuse & energise people. 

    With a wealth of knowledge and an inability to say no, he lacked one thing... the ability to see this event in his future. 

    Mike recently underwent an almost routine emergency operation which unfortunately didn’t go to plan & resulted in major complications , At one point putting Mr T into an induced coma for 4 days with a further 3 operations was the only way to deal with the massive post op infection Mike suffered. 

    There was a moment when it was unclear as to whether he would recover at all. 

    It would be a wild underestimate to say this has been a difficult time for the family and Mr T.

    Mike’s health & the lasting implications on his life remain unclear. What is clear is that Mike has put so much effort into his business, his networking family, his tireless promotion of Plymouth & his fundraising that he didn't prepare for a rainy day of this magnitude. 

    He now not only faces a long road to recovery, he also faces the very real prospect of losing everything he has worked so hard for.

    As a proud man he may not thank me for asking you for help & yet, I think he'll understand why. ️

    I would hope, that as a group of individuals who have, in the past (& again in the future) been motivated & inspired by Mike, who have taken a moment of his time here & there, connected with others because of him or profited from his support, we can help.

    By offering Mike, Helen & his daughters emotional & financial support this fundraiser will help take some of the pressure off him & in turn aid his recovery by removing the stress the 'lynch pin' has found himself under.

    Fully supported by Mike, Helen & the girls.
    Thank you so much for your support

      Thank you all so much so far! You are all amazing! ❤️ In just five days you have donated £5100 to the Mike Turner fund. Which means you have kindly donated more than the original target and with Mike looking at a long term recovery period, your support will enable him and the family to feel less stress and pressure and give Mike the time he will need to recovery properly. And with 25 days to go #together we could smash the 🎯 target figure!! Maybe we could even think about doubling it!! Could we?? Read, share & donate. Thank you 😊

      Continuation... He is still very drugged up, on industrial antibiotics and being fed intravenously. He is wired up to even more machines than he usually is in the office but the good news is that he can’t get Facebook on any of them! So whilst his body is healing, his mind is going insane as you can imagine :) Mike, our girls & I would like to thank all of you for the amazing donations you have made so far and let you know how deeply we appreciate it. I have made Mike aware of the fundraising page and he was speechless!! Much love

      This donation is from Vince McConville, who deserves a huge shout out, I needed website work doing while Mike was unwell and Vince has given his time for free and asked me to donate here instead :-)

    The Turner family have had their fair share of difficulties and yet continue as normal. Several members of the family, including Mr T were involved in a life threatening car accident 10 years ago, they're definitely stretching Mr T's nine lives!
