ABOUT JOSEPH's JOURNEY
We are raising money to support Joseph with his treatment and recovery.
In May 2020, Joseph was due to attend Buckingham Palace to receive his Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award. Until 1st March 2020 Joe's life was full of Club Hockey, County Cricket, A Level's, Surfing, Skiing. You name it he did it, with passion, energy, and a cheeky grin.
On 1st March 2020, 18 years of energy and laughter came to an abrupt standstill when Joe was hit by a car and received a severe traumatic Brain Injury, from which he still hasn’t woken up.

He really is an incredible man.
We hope that as soon COVID allows, extra therapy can resume and that these little steps will lead to bigger steps over the coming months.
Love and best wishes,
Aunt Sal, Auntie Kate, Sarah and the Joseph's Journey team
