Joshua Davies

£3,145 of £3,000 goal

Raised by 196 people in 56 months


Joshua is 18 years old and has aspergers syndrome, he was attacked by some boys that had been bullying him for 5 years. Joshua was chased and the boys threw stones at him which resulted in him falling from a bridge in Pontypridd.

Joshua is not able to walk as his spine was damaged and he has no feeling in his legs at all.
This page is for Joshua and his family to help them through these tough times and ensure that Joshua is able to recover as well as possible.



In the first image Joshua is 13 and this is when three boys began to bully him.

We know we have hit our original target, however the cost of a special bed for Joshua is £3694.80. Please, please continue to donate as we want to help Joshua on the road to a recovery and his new life. The "donate now" top right of this page will take you to your paypal account. If you do not have an account you are welcome to ask a friend with an account to donate on your behalf, just make sure that you put your name in the message.

From the bottom of our hearts we thank you.

Just to let you know that your paypal statement will state that you paid PHOTOGRAPHY BY LORNA.

I know this confuses people because the account is a small business but I am Joshua's aunt and I set this page up in a flash so that we could raise money for Joshua and this wasn't something we considered at the time.

I tell you this so that you don't ask paypal to refund your donations because of something I didn't consider when I made this page for him. Joshua has to pay a fine each time a chargeback is issued and sadly that is sometimes a lot of money.

Thank you for understanding and for all your continued support and love.

Lorna Knightingale.

Joshua is so grateful for everyone's support and he loves getting messages so I have updated the address below. It is so wonderful seeing his sit up and cast free.
@ the new hospital, sitting & cast free

Joshua, your strength , spirit and fortitude is awe inspiring. Why is it that so often the very best people get bullied? Is it because we are strong enough to not allow them to win? I don't know. I just know you're an inspiration.

Hi Josh, I have autism and I know what it is like to be bullied. I live in Oxfordshire and there is a charity called autism oxford (something like that anyway) and through their website I was able to get an alert card (bank card size) that has your name and 2 contacts on of your choice, if I need any help or support I show my card and the people who see it have to help you and can ring one of the contacts on the back. I wonder if this sort of thing would be helpful for you?? I mean if you can get one of course :) I hope that this makes sense to you and your family Get well soon and I am sorry to hear that one or more of the injuries are permanent :( Chin up, I know it's hard but it will get a bit better soon
