Disaster struck The Williams Family on February 5th 2007 when Vaughan's son 20 year
old Arthur Williams, a Royal Marine was involved in a car accident on his way to work.
It was quickly realised that he had broken his spinal cord in several places and was
paralysed, permanently, from his waist down.

Arthur was initially was taken to the Accident and Emergency Department at Worcester
Hospital and then two days later transferred by air to the Midlands Centre for Spinal
Injuries at Oswestry .

He was very ill and spent 4 months in the hospital, with the first 6 weeks on his back.
The doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and countless other staff were amazing. Not only
saving his life, but later stabilising him and then using their enormous expertise to provide
him with new life skills.

In June he was transferred to the military hospital at Headley Court, near Epsom, for
further rehabilitation. Vastly experienced themselves, they were impressed with what
Oswestry had achieved.

H.M.S AlbionArthur is slowly getting his life back together and at the moment is still a Royal Marine. Both the Royal Marines and his ship, H.M.S. Albion have been of immense support to him over the last year. They have shown the truth of the statement that the Royal Marines are more than a career but are a family that always do their best to look after their own.

The debt to Oswestry can never be repaid but Vaughan Williams is determined to try. He intends to walk from John O'Groats to Lands End to raise money for Oswestry's Spinal injuries unit and for "Spirit" a charity that provides money for research into spinal injuries and their treatment. Starting on St Georges day, April 23rd, he believes that the journey should take fifty four days ending at Lands End on June 18th. This is at an average of approximately fifteen and half miles a day.

What he needs now is your help. If you can help in any way please contact Vaughan or go to the donate link to give money.
