Support Pete and Lucinda as they make the most of their last precious moments


Just over a year ago shortly before Pete’s 33rd birthday, he received the most shocking news anyone dreads. He was diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer. A very short 2 weeks later, he and Lucinda then discovered the wonderful news that they were expecting. After letting all this sink in, Pete has tried to carry on with life as normal as possible, enjoying his speedway over the country, some karting and preparing for the arrival of their daughter.

Over this last year Pete has been undergoing various treatments, trying to buy any time he could to have with his family. Now after welcoming their beautiful daughter Dakota into the world in January, getting married in a very intimate elopement in Queenstown (with just the 3 of them) and recently celebrating his 34th birthday with close friends and family, Pete has now received the news we were all hoping wouldnt be so soon; Pete has been given an estimated life expectancy of just 3 months, after discovering treatment is no longer working.

I am setting up this page in the hope to raise some money for Pete and Lucinda, so they can treasure these last precious moments together, hopefully fit in a family holiday Pete has been wanting and see all their friends and family, without financial pressure behind them.

Any donation will be hugely appreciated no matter how big or small.

Thank you
