A bit about Gareth and what the funds raised on the night will be used for …

On the 25th of April this year, while most people were celebrating Anzac Day & watching the footy, Leisha and Gareth were on a holiday in South Africa with family.

They were swimming in a river in Kleinmond, South Africa when Gareth dived into the water which unbeknown to him, was extremely shallow. Within minutes he had hit his head and swam to the surface screaming for help.

Bystanders including his family, and fiancé Leisha expected his injuries to be minimal as all that was visible was a head laceration. After being dragged from the water, Gareth told his dad he was unable to feel his legs. Which is when panic mode kicked in. It took over an hour for emergency services to arrive, and in that time Gareth started going into shock. His family, and a nearby neighbour did everything they could to keep him comfortable.

Gareth is currently in Hampstead Rehabilitation Hospital and has made huge improvements with slight movement in his toes and feet. Both Gareth and Leisha are currently unable to work, and their house and vehicle will require a lot of modifications so that Leisha and Gareth can live comfortably.

Leisha, Gareth & families appreciate any donations; big or small. If you are unable to donate, please share this event ❤️
