‘Ibiza addict’, 50, brazenly launches fundraiser to pay for his holiday drinks

A shameless Ibiza addict who splashed £650 on a subbed at Wayne Lineker’s Ocean Beach bar brazenly launched a fundraiser to pay for his drinks.

Brit Dave Nightingale appealed for people “not to be shy” and “spare a few cents” on his GoFundMe page, despite his existing package already including hundreds of pounds worth of booze.

The 50-year-old said on his last visit to the bar in September, their apparent steep prices meant he had to “order ice and wait for it to melt” when he actually bought it as part of the same package.

But Dave said he backed the high prices as it “keeps the teenagers out”.

Dave bragged he had spent £3,000 on the getaway with his wife Lisa, 45, and two mates and that he had plans to take £1,500 in spending money.

The bathroom fitter shared the GoFundMe page in an Ibiza-lovers group on Thursday but no one has donated to his so-called cause.

Dave, from Warrington, said: “People are always complaining about how expensive it all is, so I though I’d set up a GoFundMe and see if someone would pay for my drinks.

"If I end up raising enough I'd get a bottle of Ciroc vodka and they're around €250, but I'd love to raise a few grand to pay for the trip.

"All that [stuff in my GoFundMe appeal] about drinking from the pool, that's totally made up. I wasn't that poor.

"The owner of the group reviews everything that goes in before it gets published, so I'm surprised she put it on, to be honest."

It will be the couple’s third time visiting Ocean Beach for the day after they chose to splash the cash on a bed and the €25 admission tickets during his second visit last year.

But Dave believes it will be money well spent.

He continued: "I think it's worth the amount of money you pay in those big places because there's nothing else like it, and plus the prices keep all the teenagers out.

"And it depends where you're going, there's places you go and it's cheaper, but the better the place, the more expensive the drinks. You're paying for the place really.

"You've got to have some release once or twice a year, and we don't mind spending that much at Ocean Beach as a one-off.”
