Hi everyone! I am Charlotte Greenhalgh, I am not very good at writing these kinds of things so if anyone can help out with any advise it will be greatly appreciated.
Just under 3 years ago my partner left his job to pursue his dream of owning his own garage specialising in track cars (which he loves). He left the army after a tour of Afghanistan in 2012, and wanted to try to make it on his own then.
He started out with a wheel balancer, small toolbox (half full) and a set of drive on ramps. His hard work has in someways paid off as he has now managed to set up a fully functioning business.
He is amazing at what he does, and has a true passion for his work and never gives up! Working 48 hours straight sometimes to make sure customers work is absolutely perfect! He takes little to no wages every month and is now struggling to keep the doors open!
Over the past few years, he has suffered from mental health problems, despite his struggles he still puts blood sweat and tears into his work! My worst nightmare is for him to lose his business, particularly after so much hard work and struggle.
I am trying to fundraise to keep his dream alive, put the money back into the business it so desperately needs.
I fully understand this is not your usual fundraising cause, but he is my world and I will do anything to try to make him happy.
We need the funds asap to keep the doors open and make his dream work, it will be used to clear supplier accounts and invest in new equipment to help with efficiency and make sure he can keep his dream!
Any help anyone can provide would be so gratefully received! He is my whole world and my hero, so to see him succeed would be an absolute dream!
As a way of showing my gratitude, I would love to offer any supporters some discount in his garage, so any contributions will save the fantastic person donating 10% off any labour in our garage!
Thankyou in advance to any amazing person willing to help me!
