Better Care

One grateful family has raised £1,000 for the Inpatient Neurological Rehabilitation Unit (INRU) at Moseley Hall Hospital by hosting a charity football match.

Fay Davis and her family teamed up with Tamworth Football Club and former West Bromwich Albion midfielder Ian Hamilton to host the match as a thank you for the care her brother Sam Mott received while recovering from a brain aneurysm.

Former electrician Sam was just 35-years-old when collapsed at work. He was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham where he spent four weeks in critical care before being transferred to Moseley Hall Hospital, where he spent five months rehabilitating.

His sister Fay said: “Sam used to be part of a Sunday league team and is a big West Brom fan, so doing something around Football made sense. We also arranged some family activities on the day so everyone come come along and enjoy the day."

"We can’t thank the staff that supported Sam through his recovery enough, they were amazing. He is only here with us doing as well as he is because of them.”
