Joe's amazing story

Joe Robinson and friends
Joe Robinson and friends

From being given a three percent chance of survival, to cycling 280 miles in three days - Joe Robinson's story is an inspiration to us all.

When 19 year old Joe Robinson was involved in a tragic car accident, in which his school friend 17 year old Grace Hadman lost her life, he was given just a three percent chance of survival.

Joe explains: "I was put into an induced coma for 24 days, during which the John Radcliffe's surgeons, doctors, consultants and nurses fought day and night to keep me alive. They defied the odds, went beyond the call of duty and succeeded... I felt compelled to say thank you in a way that might one day help save another person's life."

So, less than one year after the accident, Joe, together with his brother Harry and school friend Mallam Grant, embarked on the 280 mile journey from Paris to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford - by bike.

They gave themselves a target of raising £20,000, enough to buy an extra thermo cooling machine for the Neurosciences Intensive Care Unit, but smashed this target raising over £35,000.
