London to Paris Bike Ride (Calais to Arras)
September 18, 2014
Just over three and a half years ago, Nick Butt was assaulted on his way home in an unprovoked attack, during a night out in Nottingham. As a result he was left with severe brain injuries and has since had to face and overcome many long and hard challenges on his road to recovery. This would not have been possible without the support of the family, friends and charities around him.
One such charity is The Wayne Howard Trust. Their Objective is:
“The relief of persons who have suffered a brain injury, their families and carers, particularly but not exclusively by the provision of advice and information, financial assistance for the purchase or hire of specialist equipment or treatment and the establishment of neurological treatment and rehabilitation clinic.”
Nick’s friends aim to support his rehabilitation in any way they can and so, the Wayne Howard Trust with whom Nick and others like Nick benefit from, is a cause close to their hearts.
Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to the Wayne Howard Trust. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organization and will claim gift aid on behalf of the Wayne Howard Trust where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
