Gavin.

That is wonderfully encouraging news about Le Fatboy.

It's just fantastic to read.

All the best to Craig and Becks, from Nick and Lin.
My mind...is normally racing. But, I can't always vouch for that.

Evening everybody.

Some of you may have already seen this, but some may not so I thought I'd post it on here too.

This is what I've sent out from the Ram It page on Facebook to try and raise some funds for Craig.

If any of you fine people want to join, let me know.

Dear All,
As many of you are aware, Craig “Fatboy”Jennings, one of Ram It Racing’s founder members was involved in an accident at Brands Hatch in July 2010.

As a result, Craig suffered serious brain injuries.

Since then, he has fought back from the brink, enduring a long and difficult recovery process that is far from over.

Currently, Craig is living at Colman’s Hospital in Norwich where he has been going through a rigorous process of treatment and therapy. He’s doing incredibly well, now having a lot of controlled movement returned to his left hand side, ever improving speech capability and very importantly has just been given the all clear to eat again! You only have to watch the look on his face while he puts away a sausage roll to know that Fatboy is still there!

Craig’s time in the Colman hospital is drawing to a close, but he still has a lot to do. The process of rehabilitation for this type of injury is very long and cannot be done without a lot of help.

A community account has been set up for Craig, along with a group on Facebook in support. His family and friends are working on raising money to help with his recovery, from buying the equipment that he’s going to need for everyday life to a possible stint in a specialist rehabilitation centre in the USA.

All manner of things are being done to raise money, from sponsored runs to car boot sales. Every bit helps.

My idea is to start up Club Fatboy. By joining this club, you would be contributing directly to helping Craig’s road to recovery.

I’m thinking of making subscription to the club £15. For this, you’d get a T-shirt and a couple of stickers.

The T shirts will read:

Club Fatboy
It's the Footure!
In support of Craig "Fatboy" Jennings

If you wanted to try and raise some funds too, once you’ve joined you can buy as many Club Fatboy T shirts from me as you’d like at cost and sell them on. Your profits then go into the fund.

As I’ve said, Craig’s recovery process is going to take time, so the updates on his progress you’ll receive might not be too frequent, but I’ll do my best to keep you informed.

If you want to join and contribute to the cause, send me a message with:
Name
Address
T Shirt Size
Payment method preferred (Paypal, Cheque, Cash)

Initially, I’ll see how many responses I get to judge how much stuff I need to buy and get printed,

For those that have never met Craig, he’s a good old Suffolk boy. Hence the deliberate spelling error you'll be wearing.

Let me know what you think.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Hi All.

Just a quicky really.

Craig is still improving and is working really hard on his speech at the moment. He is the same old Craig we know and love but still has a long way to go.
He has moved to a more permenant residence just outside of Norwich. If anyone would like to visit, i am happy to provide information and meet you there to introduce you to his newer surroundings. Please feel free to contact me either through here, or on Facebook. Craig loves having visitors, it makes his day.

Take care
Love
Rachel
