In April one of eXu’s Explorer Scouts, Ben Webster, will be doing a sponsored skydive. He has chosen to donate funds he raises to the charity “Lifeblood”. Ben has chosen this charity following Nick’s brain stem stroke last summer.
The poster to the left and attached below gives a bit more information about the sky dive and you can donate to Ben by using the link below:
Nick continues his treatment at a specialist rehabilitation centre in Goole. He continues to make some small progress and we are hoping his rehabilitation will continue.
Nick needs more visitors : Please do try to visit Nick - it helps keeps his spirits high and to make sure he does not feel forgotten and to keep him in touch with the outside world and to keep him stimulated. Contact Sian to book a slot : email email@example.com .
