Mark Middlehurst (Miggy)
had a horrific accident whilst enjoying a day off from his farming job during a working holiday in Western Australia and as a result suffered a traumatic brain injury.

Mark's injuries mean he will remain physically and mentally handicapped and needing 24 hour care for the rest of his life.

His family wish to bring him home from the hospital to be cared for but will need to build a bedroom and wet room with specialist equipment to enable him to have better comfort and to ensure he can progress as much as possible. 

Part of his rehabilitation includes Musical Therapy which has seen Mark improving.

Paul Miller (Milsner) met Mark's parents Julie & Malcolm through a mutual friend shortly after Mark's accident and have remained firm friends. Paul is returning to the UK in September 2018 to attempt a solo crossing of The English Channel to raise much needed funds to bring Mark home so he can live with his family. Thank you.

**Please note that all donations made from the UK will be coverted into Australian dollars as it is not possible to have two currencies**

Hi There, I just wanted to drop a quick line to say a huge thank you to everyone who has kindly donated, as we are now over half way to achieving our goal of $10,000 to help get Miggy home with Julie and Malc. With just over two months before we fly back and head to Dover I can safely say that now in winter, the water temperature in the Swan River in WA is on par with the English Channel. We have our 6 hour qualifier on Sunday where it needs to be less than 15.7 degrees but hopefully not too much less :) . Thanks again X

Dear Friends, we just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who has donated and shared our story to help get Miggy home, we have been absolutely bowled over by your kind generosity. With less than 3 months to go and now in winter here in Perth, the water temp along with daylight hours are reducing all the time, which is great training for the Channel. I have attached a picture of my local swimming pool (aka The Swan River) along with a photo of the "Loony under the Mooney" as my Coach Ceinwen Roberts called me when she saw this pic :D ..... Thanks again and PLEASE continue to share our journey x
