    Story

    Allan Hussey is a much loved Father, Grandfather, Husband and Friend to many people.

    On the 14th December last year Allan fell from a roof at a building job in Leicester and suffered serious head injuries resulting in brain damage. Allan spent many weeks in intensive care and is now undergoing assessments in the Brain Injury Unit at the Leicester General Hospital as an inpatient. Since that fateful day, Allan has lost his previous self and his freedom. Due to his brain injury, he is no longer able to do things like, work, drive and function independently. Allan's injury has had devastating effect on his physical abilities, his thought processes and his memory.

    Allan will shortly move to a specialist rehabilitation centre to commence further recovery. It is here that we hope Allan will re-learn vital skills and live more independently.

    We are trying to raise funds to assist with Allan's rehabilitation and support Julie, Allan's wife. Any donations would be really appreciated and will go directly to Allan and Julie to ease the financial burden incurred as a result of Allan's injuries.

    Allan is a keen sportsman and has been involved in Leicestershire Senior League football for many years, Allan was the manager at Oadby Town, Saint Andrews, Barwell, Lutterworth and other clubs in Leicestershire over the years.

    A Football & Fun day at Saint Andrews Football Club, Canal Street, Aylestone, Leicester LE2 8LZ, is being held on Saturday 11th May where Saint Andrews Old Boys will play Oadby Town Old Boys, two of the clubs that Allan previously managed. The day will start at 12:00pm and the game kicks off at 3pm.

    Please donate any amount you can and please come along to support the day on the 11th May.

    Many thanks.
