Cheque says thanks for caring

A mother and daughter whose son and brother was treated at Putney’s Royal Rehab showed their appreciation this week with the presentation of a cheque for $20,000.

The cheque from Wendy and Trudi Stout was presented to Dr Clayton King from the Brain Injury Unit and Clinical Operations Manager Jessica Taveira this week in recognition of the care provided to Brendan Stout.

Brendan had been injured in the 2007 Bridge to Bridge Water Ski Classic and the cheque amount was raised during last month’s water ski event.

“In 2008 the Royal Rehab Brain Injury Unit helped my brother, Brendan Stout recover from his brain injuries and have helped turn his life around, following his accident in the 2007 Bridge to Bridge. Trudi Stout said,

“Royal Rehab deals with numerous sports people with brain and spinal injuries and it was also chosen for its incredible work and support it provides to families.”

Trudi Stout was towed in the event by Maddy Brien and Ashley Cropper alongside Emily Rains.

“Our team used this event to create awareness and attract donations to support the work of the Royal Rehab Brain Injury Unit,” she said.
