The coach of a young rugby player who suffered life-changing injuries in a road accident will take on a cycling challenge to help him.
Wesley Tatton was part of the Stamford Rugby Club party travelling home from a tournament in Norfolk in April when under-9s player Seb was hurt.
He fell from the moving coach on the A47 near Tilney All Saints, suffering serious injuries.
Seb, from Wansford, has begun the long road to recovery in hospital. And club coach Wesley is taking a long road of his own in support of Seb and his family. He will cycle from London to Edinburgh in just four days, starting on Friday next week.
Wesley is raising money for the Matt Hampson foundation, which has pledged to help Seb in his recovery. Wesley said: “Seb has always been a very keen sportsman and is determined to participate in sport again and this is one of the driving factors for his long road of rehabilitation to recovery.
“Monies raised will help towards Seb’s recovery and support those charities that have been and will continue to be essential to this going forward.”
Wesley thanked Halford’s, The White Horse in Baston, Rytland Cycles and CycleWright.co for supporting him. Sponsor him at www.justgiving.com/Wesley-Tatton/.
