    This weekend I contacted a funster I hadn't seen for a while,, wigster! ( Steve and Donna) I discovered that Steve a few weeks ago had an operation, due to an infection, and they have had to remove one of his big toes!!

    After speaking to Steve at length I came to the conclusion he could do with a bit of support/ help ( although he never asked for it)

    He has had to give up his job, Donna is working part time 12 hrs a week over three days and hasn’t had much luck looking for more work

    This setback has seenSteve spend all his savings He gets £51per week in benefits which he gives to the campsite he's on, ( it should be £80 per wk but the old boy is just taking his £51, which I think is nice !! ) I have given them what I can and he was really grateful for the help I gave him. But they are struggling with day to day food and things.

    I think if we could get £500 together,or somewhere near, then with them budgeting it at £50 per week, with donnas few quid , they should be able to make it till early in the new year, when Steve is expecting to be able to get back to work!!!

    I hope you can help, the link is below,, and anything I'm sure will be gratefully received.

    They are really down and I’m sure whatever we could raise would be really appreciated.

    This is important. He doesn't know I'm doing this and Jim is fixing it so he cannot see this thread …cheers Jim!

    Let's see if we can help a family member out before Christmas!

    Please don't mention this on my thread Ian and Helga, because they are always reading the forum

    Thanks for reading and if you can afford a couple of quid for a Funster really down on his luck that would be great. Thanks for donating,,

    All the best,,,, ianthebuilder xxxxxxx

    That's the thing mousy,,, I don't know many people on here either, but I still feel I like I do!!

    If that makes sense,,,,, it does make me think though,,, with 50,000 or so members, why don't we have say a five pound voluntary extra payment with subs, every year,, then we would have a fantastic fund for people in the motorhome family to draw on when in times of trouble!!! And any donations wanted for any causes would be well sorted!!! Just a thought! Xxxxx. Thanks for donation,, if you ever need to raise anything for a cause or person, count me in mousy! Xxxxx

    nice one Ian, wonder if Jim has a way to block this thread from Wigster or he will soon be aware, might even embarrass them which would be a real shame

    love being part of 'us lot' always someone there for whatever need we have (y)(y)
