We're still collecting donations

On the 18th November 2020 we'd raised £3,805 with 65 supporters in 34 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

Help to keep my small business alive! Help to keep my car on the road, paying the bank. Help to maintain, service and fuel the car, to keep the wheels turning, with the support of other small businesses who carry out such work for me. 

So, who am I ? Bob of course known as 'Canadian Bob.' A name given to me by the 'Midsomer Murders' crew when I serviced their needs as they filmed in the area. That area is the Oxfordshire/Buckinghamshire border under the Chiltern Hills near Thame and Oxford.

 I first set foot in the UK in 1971. I stepped off the plane and instantly had an overwhelming feeling I'd come home. I served in the Police in Scotland. I am a proud Canadian but prouder still now as a British citizen. I love this country and fervently believe in the strength and resilience of it's people and institutions. 

Business will recover, maybe even with an economic bounce. I am not giving up! I have a viable business and am relentlessly optimistic about the future. I want to be around to serve the community again as we recover. But I need your help to get through to the end.

 I am appealing to friends, colleagues, customers and the general public. Invest in me and my future. Please give what you can. Enable me to continue serving the community into 2021 and help me in a modest way to contribute to our national revival.
