    Weʼve raised £34,605 to help Steve in his battle back to recovery

    Funded on Monday, 30th September 2019

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    On 30th May Steve was taking part in a qualifying session for the Isle of Man TT races. After a separate red flag incident Steve and the group of riders he was stopped with got instruction to return back to the paddock, as he returned at a reduced speed on the circuit he was hit head on by a course car at high speed. There is an ongoing investigation to how this incident occurred (which we are awaiting the answers) however this doesn’t change the outcome for Steve.

    Steve was initially taken to Nobles Hospital by air-med where he was stablised and then flown to Aintree Hospital, Liverpool where he currently remains in their critical care ward.

    He suffered a fracture to his larynx and pelvis, has 5cm of his femur missing, broken ankle and heel, damage to his back and a brain injury, the extent of which remains unclear.

    He had surgery on 31st for his pelvis which went well and he is due to have surgery on his leg and foot next week however only time and rest can heal the bruising.

    No one can predict what the future holds for Steve, we just have to give it time but I for one want to be able to give him everything I can that he needs to aid his recovery or make him more comfortable.

    In addition to fundraising through this page we will also be auctioning off some items and will share the details as they are available.

    Thank you all so much for your messages of support. I haven’t managed to reply to them all but please know I‘m working my way through them and reading them to Steve when he’s awake. It means a great deal to all of us to know that so many people care so deeply about Steve’s progress and recovery.

      We literally can't thank you enough for your amazing kindness and donations. I've been reading your messages aloud to Steve and he's totally overwhelmed. Yesterday brought the first of many leg and ankle operations but due to dirt in the wound it didn't go as well as hoped, though they remain confident they can mend it over time. Although his breathing seems to be improving, Steve is still suffering with a high temp (+39) so our first purchase has been a Dyson fan resulting in a reduction to 36! "Thank you" just doesn't seem to say enough!
