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

    Story

    Pinball Geoff is a wonderful human being.
    If you're reading this, the chances are you already know how nice he is. He's probably been kind to you personally.
    Not long ago, the Bikini Beach Band were physically attacked whilst unloading for a gig by drunken yobbos, and Geoff suffered an injury as a result.
    Since then, although he's recovering well, it's been difficult for him to earn a living as he's been unable to drive, drum, or lift Pinball Machines above his head in the usual fashion.
    Now, a (mini) disaster has struck; a burst radiator has caused mayhem for Geoff and his neighbours below him. He may well need his whole heating system replaced but as he's not earning he can't afford to do this at present, so is living without hot water!
    Geoff spends a good deal of his life helping others; some friends, some strangers, and all voluntary.
    I think it's time someone helped him back.
    Please give what you can, it will all add up.
    I've no idea how much a new system will cost, but I've started the target at £3000
    Thank you! .

      A ginormous THANK YOU to everyone who contributed, or even just shared this and sent nice messages. You are all lovely! Geoff is being very humble but I can tell you he's extremely touched by everyone's generosity. You've all made a huge difference to the life of a wonderful man in a time of need. Thank you all. May Karma repay your kindness, and if you don't believe in Karma, please go and treat yourself to something nice. You deserve it! 😜 Phil.

      Upon request, I have extended the duration of this until 13th August, as there are a group of people who may not see it in time otherwise. Currently the total is £4955, I am absolutely thrilled! Geoff will be able to make good use of this money, as well as replacing his heating system he should be able to replace the water-damaged flooring and carpet too. This is great news, continued huge thanks to everyone, your generosity is amazing. Please keep sharing! Phil.
