A top man regardless of the vehicle he drives (but that’s good too). What a terrific thing to do.

We've done some pretty crazy things in our 15-year Bongo stewardship but that one is off the scale. 100% Bongonaut of the Year from all at Team Muz.

Here's a message from Richard:

"I am very honoured to have won Bongonaut of the Yaer and apologies for not being at the Bash this year. A few people have enquired how to contribute towards the medical equipment costs. You can donate via this link https://gofund.me/8b95c0c7

I am now focussing on sourcing the medical supplies and getting them to the main distribution hospital and support for cities on the front line. Also I received an offer of old UK fire service clothing and uniforms that I am trying to find a contact to send them to in Ukraine! Once I have this there could be a container load full."
