Earlier this week, my good friends Herbie and Beth had all of their valuables stolen from their van whilst travelling Europe.

Perhaps the nicest guy in Nottingham, Herbie Elton-Rowley, is known by most for his phenomenal skills behind a camera, as well as being the singer of local band Super Furniture. For months, Herbie and his girlfriend Beth had been doing up a van so that they could take it around Europe with them this summer. They set off in April with the aim to capture as much of what Europe has to offer as they could. Film is Herbie's livelihood and of course, this comes with needing to use top of the range cameras and lenses etc. However, earlier this week, in Bosnia, the van was broken into whilst Herbie and Beth were out and pretty much everything was stolen from it. Herbie's camera, lenses, Macbook, phone and hard drives, as well as Beth's laptop, were all taken, with the windows of the van smashed and Herbie's driving licence in his phone case. I can only imagine how the pair are feeling at the moment, but what I do know is that Herbie's film work is invaluable to him. I've set up this crowd funder because, even though the footage on the hard drives cannot be replaced, I want to do whatever I can to get Herbie and Beth back on their feet and safely back home. Any money raised here will go towards fixing the window of the van, getting them back into Britain and hopefully to get some of their valuables returned to them. I must stress that the other reason I've set this up is because some of that equipment Herbie cannot work without. Nobody deserves what has happened to these two wonderful, warm people and if you can help me to help them, please just donate anything you can... Thank you!
