In September 2013 Rob Camm, son of BEVA Past President Ian, was looking forward to starting pre-season rugby training at York University before he started studying for his degree in Politics, Philosophy and Economics. A week before he was due to go he was involved in a terrible road accident that has changed his life forever.

Rob an active sports man, rugby player and rower has a very high level spinal injury which means that he is paralysed from the neck down and reliant on a ventilator for his breathing. Rob however is determined to rebuild his life as far as he is able. He still wants to take that place at York University.

Following Rob’s accident lots of his friends and family wanted to do something positive to help. Not only is Rob going to need everyone’s on-going love and support but there are some practical things that will make a huge difference to Rob’s mobility and communication.

The website www.cammpaign4rob.co.uk has been set up to keep those interested in touch with Rob’s news and help support his progress.
