FRIENDS and family of a man who was left with severe brain damage after a Huddersfield town centre attack are hosting a fundraiser.
Curtis Collins, 27 from London was out with friends when he was attacked and allegedly stamped on last August.
He has now been in Leeds General Infirmary for more than two-and-a-half months.
Mum, Jean, who also hails from London, has been living in the Huddersfield area since her son’s injury but has now arranged for him to be transferred to a rehabilitation centre in the capital.
He will move tomorrow, the same day that a fundraiser is held in his honour at town centre pub the Royal Swan.
Jean said: “He’s had some good news in that he’s going back to London and he’s doing a bit better than a few weeks ago – but he’s got a long way to go.
“He needs total rehabilitation – speech, sight, walking, everything – so we’re hoping to raise some money for private physio.”
The event begins at 2pm and will see supporters walking from HRI to the Westgate pub.
There they will host a pool tournament, food and a raffle.
