As you are aware, our colleague and friend Sean Cox sustained serious and life altering injuries earlier this year while attending a football game in Liverpool.
The level of solidarity from so many from our community and beyond for Sean, Martina, Jack, Shauna and Emma since this tragic incident has been overwhelming and is deeply appreciated by Sean’s family.
Over the past number of months Sean has been taking small but important steps on a road to recovery. His journey will be a long and difficult one and the focus will continue on ensuring the best possible care to maximise the potential in Sean’s recovery.
Sean has recently commenced a program of rehabilitation in Dun Laoghaire and following this will continue to require ongoing and intensive long term care and support.
The reality is that the provision of this long term care and support for Sean will necessitate significant funding over many years.
Sean, through his involvement in our community and beyond, has worked tirelessly to contribute to and enhance our community. We are determined to support Sean in every way we can so we are pleased to confirm the launch of a fund raising campaign in support of Sean's recovery – ‘Support Sean’
The Sean Cox Rehabilitation Trust is in place to collect and administer funds raised for Sean’s plight. The Trust will be responsible for distributing monies to meet the costs of Sean’s ongoing and future care and rehabilitation, and costs borne by his family related to his rehabilitation. In the event of Sean’s death the proceeds of the Trust will be transferred to his Estate.
The Trustees are Stephen Felle, David Gantly, Kevin McKeon and Paul Noonan.
