We raised this money to help our friend Dylan Brown get out of hospital and home from Ecuador after he fell from a bike and had a serious head injury.

His insurance company did not pay out and for him to be released, half of his medical bill was to be paid upfront and the rest to be paid back over a year. His bill was around $52,000!

We are not taking anymore donations as we have smashed our target and will settle the hospital bill now!

Explorer Travel are the insurance company for anyone who wants to avoid them.

I am leaving the page public but no donations can me made to it now, Dylan wants to have this for him to look back and see all of the lovely messages and donations from you all.

Over £10,200 was raised last night at Dylan's Fundraiser!

Thank you all for everything. We will be closing the gofund page today.

From Dylan and all his friends and family we are really thankful for everything you have all donated and for the support over the last few weeks!

The money will obviously go to the remaining balance for the medical bills.

Again, thank you !

As Dylan is now home we will be closing this GoFund page on Saturday morning after the money raised from his fundraiser that is being held tomorrow night is in.

Again, we are all hugely grateful and any last minute donations would be greatly appreciated, if not then we hope to see you all tomorrow at LIFE on Sauchiehall street in Glasgow. Some of the raffle prizes are amazing and a percentage of the bar takings will go to the funds too!

Cheers again for your support the past month and all your donations thus far. Dylan is home and that is all we wanted. For those who have asked, the insurance company are Explorer Travel and have still not paid out.

Obviously for anyone taking travel insurance out in the future, please read the terms and conditions and from the advice we've received, speak to someone on the phone to take out the policy that can answer any questions on a recorder call.

Dylan came through the arrivals at Glasgow airport with his rucksack on his back and a smile on his face! Genuinely was so surprised to see the big man looking so well, we all know he's strong and determined but what he's done to recover is amazing!

We took him straight to the hospital from the airport and waited a few hours on him being assessed to be told he is fine to go home and start his speech therapy and physiotherapy tomorrow onwards.

After being home for a few hours he asked to go out a drive and wanted to be out walking about for the first time in ages!

He is very grateful for all the support and wanted to let you know he is home and ready to get back on track (see picture below... )

He wants to say thanks for all the donations and again is determined to see you all on Friday.

The big mans back!
