      We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone that has donated and helped. It is amazing that so many people have donated, it just shows how many people care. James is doing so well with his rehab and will be moving on to the firefighters charity for further rehab. He will be also be using the Hyper baric oxygen therapy chamber (HBOT) which will help tremendously. He has feeling in both his legs and has had movement in his toes. James has proven to everyone that he is an amazing fighter and will not give in. Thank you all so much.

    Myself and my partner C-anne are close friends of James and Michaela and felt that whilst was in Magaluf we could do some thing back home. Setting up this page was a start and from this with James and Michaela's family, work colleague and friends we will put other events
