Go Fund Me to help with man’s dying wish.

Todayby Lizzie BeggsOrganizer
The last 48 hours have been an absolute whirlwind, we are all completely overwhelmed by the kindness we have been shown, in true Glastonbury spirit! Something that felt near impossible only days ago now feels within reach!

So we have surpassed our fundraising goal and wanted to update about where we are currently. 

The palliative care team at North Tees hospital have been fantastic and extremely supportive to this cause. They continue to liaise with the festival medical team. They are hopeful that Nige may be able to travel on Friday afternoon, but it may be Saturday morning, and then stay until Sunday evening. This is subject to Nigel’s medical condition. 

We are currently liaising and speaking with several companies to organise an appropriate helicopter (preferably air ambulance) to safely get Nige to Glastonbury. 

We have had clearance to land a helicopter nearby the festival, and are currently working on where Nige will be collected from. 

We have also managed to secure an off site home for Nige to stay in, thank you to the immense kindness of a local man with a huge heart. 

With the weather now expected to rain we are really hoping that somebody may be able to reach out or help with gaining better accessibility for Nige (possibly hospitality) to allow cut throughs in the wheelchair and to avoid potentially muddy areas. If this is something you could help with then please do get in contact. 

Nige has been utterly overwhelmed by the outpouring of love for him, it has given him such a boost and he cannot wait to be on site and hopefully thank some of you personally. He hopes to shake the hand of the absolute legend Fatboy Slim himself for shining a light on this campaign. It means the world. 

He also asked us to publicly thank the wonderful team or doctors and nurses caring for him at North Tees Hospital, they work so incredibly hard and are taking very good care of him. 

If Nige for any reason is unable to make the journey, or we have any funds left over, they will be donated directly to the Glastonbury charities in Nigel's name; Water aid, Oxfam and Greenpeace.

This community is bloody amazing. I hope he has the best time and him and his friends get to make special memories. If this year has taught me anything it’s to cherish all the great moments in life, it’s far too short.

Bit late to this, but have donated (although looks like he's smashed the target!). My mate has stage four cancer and is hoping to go again next year so I can relate to some extent, albeit she is currently in much better health. Hope he has a fantastic time xx
