    Weʼve raised £13,702 to Help support Luke Orton and his family who broke his neck while playing rugby 🏉

    Funded on Tuesday, 21st November 2023

    Story

    On Saturday 22nd July Luke was playing in a beach rugby tournament and went in for tackle like any rugby player would. Unfortunately something went horribly wrong.

    He has broken his neck (C5 vertebrae) which has pressed onto his spinal cord and left him currently unable to feel anything chest down.
    A truly scarey situation for anyone to be in.

    Like anyone Luke is just a normal guy with bills to pay, a family and friends worried sick about him and what the future holds.

    We are looking to raise some money to help cover travel costs, time of work and anything else the family may need during this terrible time.

    The page will be updated as and when there is more information on Lukes recovery and any money raised but not required to help will then be donated to a rugby injury charity or one to support others in similar situations.

    Luke himself is just a larger then life character and the news has left everyone who knew him shocked and so worried. But we all know he is a fighter and won't quit, so will do everything he can to be back to normal once able.

    Thank you
