    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


    Richard turned to the NHS to help him with his alcohol addiction after I had undergone heart surgery earlier this year. He is still waiting for treatment, but after being told NOT to stop drinking he has got worse, so we have been left with no option but to go private. I just want my husband to be able to function again and carry on enjoying his photography and the two of us chasing the ultimate sunset picture. we are so close to retirement and have many years together. At this stage I know that Richard is in the best place.

    My husband is no longer the happy chappie he was, he is in such a dark place, so please help a man that wants his life back.

    We are a hard working couple, but when we needed help we have been left high and dry.

    Please help me get my husband back!!

      Hi Guys, Saw Richard on Sunday and he is looking even better that before. He is now starting to argue with me (so definitely getting better). Really looking forward to having him home for Christmas. Once again thank you all for your very kind donations in helping us achieve our target.

      Just a quick update. I saw Richard on Sunday and he is now looking so very well. He is no longer on his medication and no longer has the dark rings under his eyes. To be truthful I am so glad that I bit the bullet and put him in private rehab and worry about payment later. He is due to complete his 6 week programme day after boxing day, but they are letting him home for Christmas with a view of finishing off after Christmas. These people deserve a medal.

      Richard is now able to walk unaided and able to dress himself. The power of the dag is huge and that seems to motivate him. I am also lead to believe that he is smoking far less. Maybe we will kill two birds with one stone. I shall be seeing him again on Friday for a much needed haircut. Once again Welsh contingency of the family thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
