'A Minor Setback' - Lecture in aid of the Alex Lewis Trust

Read more ...


Alex Lewis, from Hampshire, has been much in the news recently for his extraordinary courage and resilience in the face of catastrophic illness. In November 2013 he succumbed to Strep A Toxic Shock syndrome, a devastating infection which has led to the amputation of all his limbs and has eaten away part of his face. 

Alex Lewis is now on the long journey to rehabilitation, learning to walk on prosthetic legs and to use his new arms. The Trust named after him has been set up to fund his rehabilitation – providing wheelchairs, home adaptations and prosthetic maintenance. The Trust also plans to raise funds for the ward at Salisbury District Hospital where much of Alex Lewis’s treatment was carried out. In the future it aims to provide civilian amputees with resources and information and to support others affected by this rare condition.

Alex’s amazing courage – he described the amputation of his one remaining limb as a ‘minor setback’ – has inspired many members of the medical team who have treated him.

As a student physiotherapist at UWE and physiotherapy assistant at Salisbury Hospital I felt inspired to help and have decided to organise a charity lecture at Warminster School. Speakers are set to include physiotherapists involved in Alex’s care at various stages, military physiotherapists who have worked with the Alex Lewis Trust… and of course Alex himself.’

This silent auction will be run in the lead up to the event and on the night.

I hope you feel as inspired as I have to help support Alex!

Happy Bidding!

When bidding on an auction item, if you enter more than the minimum increment for an item then your bid will be used for proxy bidding. This is how it works:
1. You enter the absolute maximum that you are willing to bid for an item.
2. jumblebee places a bid on your behalf, using the minimum amount required to make you the highest bidder, i.e. current bid price plus bid increment OR the reserve price, if there is one and it can be covered by your proxy bid.
3. jumblebee continues to bid on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your maximum bid is exceeded or the auction is won.
4. jumblebee will notify you by email if your maximum bid is outbid by another member and provided the auction is still running, you will then have a chance to enter a new maximum bid if you wish.
For example:
The current bid on an auction item is £100. The minimum increment is £10. You enter a bid of £150 (your maximum bid).
Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
Another person bids £130 but they are immediately outbid by jumblebee bidding on your behalf and the current bid goes up to £140.
The auction finishes and you have won the auction item at a price of £140.
