More than £5,600 has been raised in 36 hours for the family of a man who suffered head injuries in a farming incident earlier this year.

 

In April 2016, Paul Milner was driving a tractor when the chain he was using to tow heavy machinery snapped and smashed through his vehicle’s rear window.

 

Mr Milner sustained life changing injuries and has been in hospital since the incident in April.

 

Crowd funding

 

The friends of Mr Milner’s wife, Natacha set up a crowd funding campaign to ’assist Paul and his family in getting through the next few months and Christmas’.

 

The funding page states: "Paul was self employed and as such is no longer getting paid.


"The family have had to modify parts of the house, some of that at their expense and are having to fund private neuro physiotherapy to aid Paul’s recovery.

 

"They have been living off their savings but these are now depleted.

 

Assistance

 

"In addition to this situation, one of the boys needs extra support to process such a traumatic event and another has his own severe medical needs which means he needs many surgeries and lots of treatment himself.

 

"As you can imagine, emotionally these circumstances are difficult and the strained finances are just adding to an already stressful situation.

 

"We are setting up this fund to assist Paul and his family get through the next few months and Christmas. Any funds raised would make a huge difference to the Milner family."
