Help Replace My Dad's Stolen Bike & Support RNLI

My Dad had his bike stolen in the early hours of this morning (Friday 8th November) from outside his home in Fawley, Southampton.

He lives in a quiet area, in a cul-de-sac road with little crime in the local area.

The bike was attached to the top of my Dad’s car, the lock and roof bars were broken on the car to remove it. To make matters worse, this is my Dad’s new car that he’s only had for 2 months, after waiting months and doing lots of overtime to get this lovely car, so along with a stolen bike he also needs to make repairs to his new car that he’s worked so hard for.

My Dad is devastated, the bike is his pride and joy and it’s his way of keeps fit and healthy. He’s had the bike less than a year and again, had worked really hard to buy it. It’s a white Specialized Fuse.


Anybody who knows Mr Bean, will know that he is the most caring, giving man, always helping others and rarely asking for anything in return.

And to all those people that Dad has helped with their cars over the years, fixing them, making repairs, getting cheap parts etc. I ask that you repay some of that kindness and help raise funds so that my Dad can replace his bike and cover some of the costs to the repairs needed for his car.

As most of you will also know, for the last couple of years my Dad has dedicated his time and efforts to the RNLI, volunteering at his local lifeboat station in Calshot.

So for all donations made to my Dad, 10% of the total raised will be donated to the Calshot RNLI station to support the amazing work they do looking after the community.

Please help my amazing Dad, he truly is one in a million and he didn’t deserve this.
Donate as much or as little as you can, and if you can’t donate, it would be really helpful if you could share this to reach as many people as possible.


Andy’s Daughter, Nic
