A Honiton man who was left disabled after a road accident is raising money for the charity that helped his family.

Jordan Joyce suffered serious brain damage and physical injuries when, aged 15, he was struck by a car while delivering newspapers.

He spent 11 days in a coma and during that time the Bristol-based charity Ronald McDonald House provided free accommodation so his loved ones could stay near him.

Now he has decided to help the organisation by holding a fundraising day, which will be held at the family church in Honiton High Street on Saturday (May 6) between 10am and 3pm.

It will feature an auction, raffle, refreshments, bric-a-brac and stalls. Jordan, 28, whose recovery has been helped by expressing his emotions though music and poetry, will also be selling CDs of his first full-length album, Reaching Out to You.

He added: “I am extremely grateful to be here to be able to give what I can back,” he said.
