Raising money for Jamie Mines

£133,565 of £100k goal

Raised by 2,670 people in 2 months
Ian Kennedy  Frome, ENG
This young man's name is Jamie Mines. He is a honest, very hard working man. He is the provider of his beautiful family of newly born twin girls. He is a scaffolder by trade. Jamie is a popular man from the town of Frome who always had time for other people. Jamie was a keen, active and talented sportsman who played semi professional football for Frome Town Fc, Radstock, Larkhall and Paulton and was known as a goal machine for each of his clubs. We are honoured to know him and honoured to call him our friend. Now the tragic part... Just days before his first Christmas with his girls, Jamie was working at height on scaffolding in Swindon and was electrocuted so severely he had to be rescued by the emergency services and his injuries were so severe he had to be placed into an induced coma and remains in critical condition in intensive care, he has had both hands amputated up to his forearm and also one of his legs in order to keep him alive.
To have your life change in the blink of an eye is devastating for Jamie and all of his family. Jamie's life will never be the same. Our hearts goes out to Jamie and his family because we know the road ahead of him is going to be a difficult one. We pray he can keep his head up and stay strong and know he has love, support, and prayers behind him. If you are able, please consider helping out this family. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

UPDATE ON JAMIES CONDITION

Jamie's condition has been improving over the last few days. He has been off the ventilator and awake for a time each day and has started the most basic of rehabilitation. You'll all be happy to know that he has a TV in his room and has managed to watch a bit of football. He is still in Intensive Care and has a way to go before he can come out of there, but it's great to have some positive news to share.
Thanks again for all your support.

Please share and donate all you can x

UPDATE on Jamie's condition

Message from Jamie's brother Ben:
Jamie is still in intensive care where they are continuing to monitor the effects of the burns on his body. The medical team are impressed with his progress, but continually remind us that we do not yet know what the full outcome will be. He is definitely fighting hard!

Thank you to everyone for the amazing support, care and fund raising efforts x

Hi I have contacted frome carnival this morning to ask for buckets which they have kindly agreed to, I will be picking them up today. Does anyone know of anyone that could kindly print off and laminate posters to put around the buckets?, I will then go around frome and leave them in shops, schools, supermarkets etc, I have also just contacted both frome papers so people can be aware of this as not everyone uses the internet, hope this way we can raise more money for Jamie and his family xxx
