Steve Thorpe makes custom built tortoise tables from his small workshop in West Yorkshire. The recent storm Ciara left his tools and all his current work under 10 feet of storm water.

Unfortunately the same thing happened two years ago and Steve loaned money to get back on his feet.  Being in a high risk flood area Steve has been unable to get insurance.  

Steve doesn’t like to ask for handouts but he has helped so many people with his wonderful and reasonably priced products I wanted to help so have set up this page.

As Steve feels so uncomfortable with the idea of fundraising and has never asked for handouts  I have suggested that if the people that donate purchase a table in the future he knocks that money off the price which Steve thought was a good idea.

Please help a lovely kind and humble gentleman get his business back up and running by donating whatever you can, if we all have a few pounds it would help him immensely.

We all have really rotten luck sometimes and we would all appreciate a helping hand in those times. Please help if you can. Thanks
