Paignton 'Hit and Run' Victim

In the early hours of New Years Day, Simon and his family were walking the short distance home after visiting friends for New Years Eve. During the walk home Simon was struck by a car travelling towards him. Simon suffered serious fractures to his pelvis and legs and was rushed to Derriford hospital for immediate medical attention. The driver of the vehicle failed to stop at the scene. Simon is likely to be undergoing operations and medical examinations for at least six months, all of which he will not be able to stand or walk whilst his injuries heal. Simon will not be able to attend work and his wife will need time off to care for him. We are looking to raise some funds to help Simon and his family through this difficult time. Money can be tight at the best of times, this incredible family have to juggle work, school and household bills whilst Simon is innocently deprived of his independence. Please help to make this difficult time slightly better.

The following details are statutory to 'gofundme's Fraud Prevention guidelines:
This donation page has been set up by Gavin and Kelly Coysh from Paignton, friends with Simon and Rachel for over ten years. All funds raised will be forwarded to Simon in order to help with daily living costs and medical provisions whilst he undergoes rehabilitation, to fund travel to and from hospital and for accommodation for Simons wife whilst he is away from home. All funds raised will be forwarded by Bank Transfer along with a print out of the amount raised through 'gofundme' to either Simon or Rachel's prefered account.
Thank you for your continued support.
