Alex Lewis Fundraiser

Read more ...


We are raising funds for Alex Lewis for prosthetic limbs and home alterations.

Alex is 34; a former county junior player who played off a two handicap. He & his partner Lucy have a 3 year old son Sam.

In November last year, Alex collapsed and was rushed to hospital where he was immediately put into intensive care, he had contracted Strep A Toxic Shock Syndrome and was given just a five percent chance of survival.

Alex's incredible will to live and see his son grow up pulled him through.  The virus however had taken a heavy toll as all four of his limbs have now had to be amputated.

What is so amazing is Alex's attitude to this devastating adversity, rather than feel sorry for himself he's focusing on life once his prosthetic limbs are fitted.

“I’m lucky to be alive today.  To be able to have the chance to walk the dog with my son again in the countryside, something as simple as that, just like I used to, well that’s just amazing.

I think you cope because you have to. If you don't, chances are you will probably die.

You have to make the best of the situation, realise what you have got, not what you haven’t got.”

Alex has been in hospital for many months and still faces many more months in hospital and a long journey to rehabilitation. He must also undergo reconstructive surgery on his face as the virus also took his lips.

Obviously Alex and his family face an indescribably tough future.
 

Lots close from 12PM BST Sunday 3rd AND Weds 6th August.  Please check times for Lots you are bidding on to avoid missing out.

Special thanks to Sky Sports' Tim Barter.

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.
