Please give a little to raise much needed funds for specialised equipment and a mobility dog for Marcel to face his challenges ahead.
PITCH IN FOR THE PARMENTIERS
Just six weeks ago, a young man was thrown one of life's toughest curve balls when he was injured during a snowboarding accident and suffered a serious spinal injury which has left him paraplegic.
His name is Marcel Parmentier, he was raised in Clevedon and he has probably served you coffee - with a big smile - at the Clevedon Village Farmers' Market. His lovely mum, Helen, may have sorted your niggling neck or back problems through her osteopathy practice at local health centre iBod.
Marcel is a special person whose warmth, energy and maturity makes an impression on everyone he meets. At the time of his accident, he was about to complete his building apprenticeship. He is coming to terms with the new challenges he faces, and is redirecting his career aspirations towards quantity surveying or construction management.
Fortunately, Marcel has his own positive attitude and an incredibly supportive family to help him adjust to his new life. We, as a community, can also help by raising funds for a specially trained Lagotto mobility dog who will be Marcel's companion and right-hand canine as he embarks on this challenging journey. Marcel also needs specialised equipment to assist in his rehabilitation and everyday activities. Which are all necessary to provide the support he will need as he takes on his new challenges.
The 2015 Clevedon Jazz Wine and Food Festival would like to support by contributing to the cause. This will be a fabulous day for your family and friends to enjoy on the 14th February in the beautiful valley of Clevedon.
Thank you ever so much for your support.
