Dave Shields appeal

Bob Little has set up a Just Giving site to enable people to contribute to building a positive future for Dave Shields. Members will know that Dave suffered life-changing injuries at a flying competition in August. He expects to be living in a recently-secured house near Chester, but essential adaptions are needed to allow him to follow an independent life. To help, go to Bob's Just Giving webpage.

Bob adds, "We love a sport where the risks are low but the consequences are high. If you can help with time, money or materials contact me at boblittle@wirral.gov.uk. Dave needs a home when he leaves hospital; if anyone can do it, we can."
