Following on from our previous blog post, Gary Robinson, director at Cast UK, has reunited with the medical team at Warrington General that saved his brother’s life to present a cheque of £1000 as a result of his fundraising earlier this year.
In February, Robert Robinson, Gary’s brother, suffered cardiac arrest in the early hours of the morning. After family and paramedics performed CPR and managed to get him breathing again, Robert was taken to the resuscitation and critical care unit at Warrington General where he remained in a coma under the vigil watch of nurses and doctors for 36 hours.
Robert awoke and, with no signs of permanent brain damage, five months later has made a full recovery and is hoping to return to his job as a physics teacher at Birchwood High School in Warrington.
Commenting on Gary’s fundraising efforts, managing director at Cast UK, Wayne Brophy said: “We are all really proud of Gary and delighted that he has reached his fundraising goals. Gary and his brother Robert are both an inspiration.
“The team at Cast UK wishes Gary all the best for future fundraising and training, as we hear another marathon is on the cards!”
