Fundraiser planned for Richard Valentine

A fundraiser, in aid of Richard Valentine, as he battles his way through hospitals bills and bad luck, is being held on May 27. Details below. Richard’s story, by his own admission, is a cautionary tale about being adequately insured whilst living in Thailand.


Local expat Richard Valentine was in a traffic incident on his motorbike recently and is currently getting treatment in a Phuket government hospital. The bills are mounting up.

“Help needed.

As many of you know I was the victim of a hit and run accident on 31st March which left me with a leg broken in 4 places with no-one, that was responsible, to get their to insurance pay. I am still confined to a bed in a Thai Government Hospital who offer a great service but are not free like the case in my home country of UK.

4 operations later the the insurance money has run out and there are a further 2 options required, one of which will be tomorrow.

I am asking for any monetary help that can be given through the money funding link below.

In addition to paying for the operations, I am going to need to pay for physiotherapy sessions to see if I can walk properly again and, if not, what quality of life I can have after that.

Any help that can offer would be greatly appreciated as even smaller amounts when added up can make big difference. Please feel free to share this link if you believe others may help. If there are any problems from making donations from overseas please let me know an i will provide an alternative account number.

Thank you Richard Valentine.”
