Support Suvaco's 50th Birthday!

***** WOOHOO we reached our target - thanks to everyone who donated! Page open until 07 January so if you'd like to contribute - more driving lessons would be welcome!***

On Friday 09 December Suvaco – or Suvaco Norman Kjellerup Hansen as he’s more commonly known - will be turning 50.

Many of us who know Suvaco will know of course of his giving and generous heart – whether as a friend, mentor, therapist or teacher - and so therefore won’t find it that surprising that he didn’t have a ready supply of answers when asked what he’d like for his birthday. However for those who would like to offer some celebration or appreciation, perhaps this might offer one way.

Now that’s he approaching adulthood Suvaco has mentioned an aspiration of learning to drive. However costs are expensive. A bit ridiculously so. In fact according to a recent report they average out at:

• Provisional licence - £34 online
• Lessons – Average cost £24 per session. Times x 15 = £480*
• Revision book, DVD and Highway Code - £25
• Theory test - £25
• Practical test + 1 hour preparation - £86
• TOTAL: £650

(*The average cost of a driving lesson is now £24, with the DSA (Driving Standards Agency) recommending 47 hours of tuition for the average adolescent beginner. However as Suvaco is a pretty astute learner I’m thinking we start with 15 and go from there....)

If you’d like to help Suvaco achieve his goal there's a number of ways in which you might help out, including:

- contributing a donation to the overall costs
- offering to take him out on practice lessons (preferably if you’ve passed yourself)
- helping him get up to speed on the 50 questions in the theory test (have to get at least 43 right to pass)
- provide encouragement and moral support by coming up with ideas of adventures and away trips you can take once he’s passed.

And if you know of any special deals or have driving instructor friends in and around the Totnes area then please drop me a line at lindsayalderton@gmail.com

Of course all of this comes with a caveat; Suvaco being Suvaco I can’t 100% be sure that the money raised will go on driving lessons. He may decide instead to give it to some friends who are sleeping rough or on hard times, or put it towards something else more worthwhile. It is however very unlikely that it’ll get wasted away on women, wine and punk rock music. Although you never know….

Please feel free to pass this on or share it with others. We’ll make sure that all messages get shared. And if you're paypal adverse or like to do a direct transfer, or have any questions or suggestions please don't hesitate to drop me a line at lindsayalderton@gmail.com

With love and appreciation,

X Lindsay

    Dear Suvaco, happy birthday! I'd be happy to help you with hands behind the wheel on a visit to Totnes, or Bristol.. and definitely up for adventures once you've learnt to drive if you would like that! I've made a contribution.

    Dear bro - let's go for a spin some time! And how about wine, women and punk rock once the vehicle is safely stashed? You're very welcome to come and practice driving up steep, muddy pot-holed tracks.

    Hi Suvaco, Greetings from the one who swapped places with you, so there was space in the UK for you. Let's see if Brexit will change all that. You will always have a special place in my heart. Hopefully we can share some silence again someday. Hugs Tonto
