Help towards costs for what will potentially be a long road to recovery and rehab for Arlen

Main image

Arlen is currently fighting for his life following a tragic accident whilst he was cycling to his work in the early hours of Wednesday 31st March. His family have been traveling up and down from Whangarei (and beyond) daily, to be by his side while he recovers in Auckland City Hospital Intensive Care Unit.

This is a family's worst nightmare and I would like to raise funds to support Arlen (and his family) during this hardest fight of their lives. Arlen is well-loved by so many and would be the first to move mountains to help anyone else, so every little bit counts.

Donations will be transferred to a separate account which has been set up for Arlen specifically with Westpac. If anyone would like the details instead, please get in touch.

**Update** I'd just like to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for donating, sharing this page and helping me do this (I acknowledge and thank others who also had the same idea this is on your behalf as well). I'm BLOWN AWAY by all your kindness and Arlen's folks think you are all bloody amazing!! All your kind messages are being passed on :)

Laura McKay's involvement (page creator)

I am one of the emergency responders to Arlen's accident. His grandad Jeff is our crewmate but I want to support Arlen and both of his families. This page has been set up with permission from both the D'Ath and Newton whanau.

Use of funds

Funds will be decided in consultation between the D'Ath and Newton whanau and used to help pay for treatment and whatever Arlen needs to get better whilst he is in hospital and beyond.
