I started conversations about the situation on twitter – as a coping strategy as much as anything else. Offers of help and support have come in from all over and I now have a determination to get my show back on the road, (quickly)
So what’s next ?
What do you do when life gives you lemons? – Yes.. of course..you go out and buy a blue horsebox.
Friend of a friend knew of a horsebox in a field in Wakefield. I went to Wakefield, haggled with a farmer and bought the horsebox. My friend’s dad has a caravan and tows it to Whitby – surely he could tow a blue horsebox to Leeds – he could and he did.
The plan is convert this blue horsebox into an Indian style cooking station. I hope the insurance money will cover the cost of a towing vehicle and I will launch a crowdfunder campaign to help fund the conversion of the horsebox and we can get back onto the road. I send a smile to Katie and Kim’s Kitchen for showing that this indeed may be possible!
Thank- you to all who have sent messages of support. They are appreciated – big time. I am not very good at asking for help or things but do look out for the crowd funder campaign when it is launched and I may post again with a request for actual things we need like paint, worktop, gas burner etc.
But for now – i am off to buy a bucket and start cleaning.
Thank you for reading Manj & Michael x
