A HIGHBRIDGE mother is looking for funds to buy equipment for her son who was left severely disabled after suffering from a traumatic brain injury.

In November 2015 Georgina May Cornwall's life was rocked when her son Kelvin was left fighting for his life after he was physically harmed and suffered from a traumatic brain injury.

The 24-year-old mother of two was told Kelvin only had a one per cent chance of surviving but two years on her son is still fighting.

Due to the injury Kelvin is now fed through a tube, suffers with seizures and muscle spasms, has no body control, is partially blind and requires round the clock care.

As a result Georgina is looking for funds to buy vital equipment to ensure Kelvin has a good quality of life "Kelvin is now on a blended diet which is very expensive and he has grown out of some of his equipment which he uses on a daily basis," Georgina said.

"We have carers come in a few times a week to help with his care but we do most of it.

"As Kelvin grows up he will need more equipment to meet his needs. When I moved into my home it was quite rushed as Kelvin came home from the hospital sooner than I thought.

"We are still trying to get the house sorted so it is accessible for him but there are things we still need."

To raise funds Georgina has set up a Just Giving fundraising page and has raised £200 and will be hosting a bingo night in April which she hopes will boost the total.

"Lots of people have been really helpful in getting the bingo night set up," Georgina said.

"People have been donating items for prizes and Highbridge Social Club has let me use the hall for free for the event.

"I didn't really want to ask for help from anyone but everyone has been great.

"There will never be an amount of money that I could raise that could cover everything that Kelvin needs but I will keep fundraising."

The bingo night will take place at Highbridge Social Club on April 14 at 7pm.
