    Story

    Welcome to our just giving page. Our aim is to raise the money needed to fly my brother simon back home to us in the u.k.
    On the 13th of july 2017 simon collapsed in poznan airport whilst waiting for his flight home. We were not aware he was due to fly home at this time and We were not contacted by any agencies till the 26th of july. Devastatingly he has suffered catastrophic brain damge and will remain in a coma. We now know he is not expected to regain consciousness. There are no words to describe our pain but We are all absolutly heartbroken and numb especially his mam who due to her own health has not been able to visit him. We desperatly need him home in a specialised unit to spend his days around us. We have learned he had medical cover so there are no medical bills to pay but we still have to pay to fly him home so the money raised will pay for a private air ambulance package to fly him home as he is not fit to travel by road due to his medical needs. The cost of this is £12,500. The remaining money raised will pay towards the costs of arranging his affairs. Simon was born to travel and had lived in australia and newzealand. He had visited places like bali, abu dhabi and dubai too. He didnt spend much time at home in newquay and loved exploring europe and had recently found a love for berlin and poland over the last year. He also enjoyed working on the festivals over the summer. I hope we can raise the funds to get him on one last flight back to his home town of hartlepool. I thank each and every one of you for reading our cause and thankyou in advance for any donation made.

      We have recieved some information and advice stating simon MAY be able to travel home by road ambulance. Initially doctors in poland have been against this idea as his condition is too unstable. We have been talking to a repatriation company who have said this may not be the case. It is still early days and we are waiting for the communications department to be in touch so we can forward the hospital and doctors details so they can liase. If doctors in poland agree to a land transfere the cost is only £7000-£8000. Thankyou all from our hearts x
