Get Rick 'The Jersey Bull' home!

On Sunday 12th Oct, my good friend and fellow powerlifter Rick Jones tore his quadricep tendon completely rendering him totally unable to stand or walk and in need of emergency surgery to regain mobility. As if this wasn't bad enough, Rick lives in Jersey and therefore was unable to travel home; but thanks to an amazing surgical team at Lister in Stevenage he has now had his quad tendon reattached and is being discharged tomorrow. Now - we need to get him home to Jersey. He is unable to fly due to a risk of thrombosis immediately post op. He needs to get home this weekend as there are no more viable childcare options. There are ferries running on Saturday so we are aiming for that - moving him will require help from several people as Rick is 22 stone (with abs - he'd want me to throw that bit in ha ha) and use of a car to transport him from hospital to the ferry. Let's all pool together to help 'The Jersey Bull' get home to his kids, and see him on a successful rehab program to enable him to get back to doing what he loves!
