Slough Town to raise funds for Jamie Mines
Written by Slough Town Football Club
Please support our collection for Jamie and give generously if you can.
Slough Town Football Club will be collecting funds in aid of non-league footballer Jamie Mines, who suffered life-threatening injuries in a work accident, at our home match against Weymouth at Arbour Park on Tuesday evening.
Jamie was electrocuted and suffered injuries so severe he had to be placed into an induced coma and remains in critical condition in intensive care. He has had both hands amputated up to his forearms and also one of his legs in order to keep him alive.
Please support this collection and give generously if you can. You can also donate to Jamie's fund via a dedicated Gofundme page: click here
Further details from Billy Wright and Ian Kennedy on behalf of the 'Friends of Jamie' fundraising team, can be found below:
Jamie Mines is an honest, very hard working man. He is the provider of his beautiful family of newly born twin girls. He is a scaffolder by trade.
Jamie is a popular man from the town of Frome who always had time for other people. Jamie was a keen, active and talented sportsman who played semi professional football for Frome Town, Radstock, Larkhall and Paulton and was known as a goal machine for each of his clubs. We are honoured to know him and honoured to call him our friend.
Now the tragic part... just days before his first Christmas with his girls, Jamie was working at height on scaffolding in Swindon and was electrocuted so severely he had to be rescued by the emergency services and his injuries were so severe he had to be placed into an induced coma and remains in critical condition in intensive care, he has had both hands amputated up to his forearm and also one of his legs in order to keep him alive.
To have your life change in the blink of an eye is devastating for Jamie and all of his family. Jamie's life will never be the same. Our heart goes out to Jamie and his family because we know the road ahead of him is going to be a difficult one. We pray he can keep his head up and stay strong and know he has love, support, and prayers behind him. If you are able, please consider helping out this family.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
