David Holmes - Giving back to the hospital that saved his life

We are excited to share with you a remarkable initiative led by RNOH Charity Ambassador David Holmes. David has set up a fundraising appeal with the ambitious goal of raising £100,000 for the refurbishment of the Day room at RNOH’s Spinal Cord Injury Centre.

David spent six months at the Spinal Cord Injury Centre in 2009, following an accident on set while filming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1.

David said, "I could not be more thankful for the outpouring of love and support for my documentary David Holmes: The Boy Who Lived. The main reason I am able to be here now is due to their expert team at the RNOH. That’s why I became an ambassador for the RNOH Charity over 10 years ago.

The Spinal Cord Injury Centre, where I stayed, is dedicated to comprehensive rehabilitation for people like me who experienced life changing spinal cord injuries. The centre needs funds for its out-dated Day room to create a space that enhances the wellbeing of patients, promotes community and elevates morale during recovery.

Please join me in supporting the incredible work of the RNOH and helping other patients who face similar challenges by supporting (give only what you can afford) our Go-Fund Me. We aim to raise the funds before Christmas so the work can begin in the new year.

Thank you so much for helping to support the hospital that rebuilds lives like mine. Best wishes, David Holmes."
