Please take a minute to read Richards story, then click through to Rich's Progress page to see how things are progressing for Richard and his situation. Since launching this appeal site things have changed for Richard and his family.
Richard Daniel Plummer first fell in love with Bali while travelling around Indonesia on his way to New Zealand in 2009. Infact he was so blown away by Bali that he decided to stay and abandoned his plans to go to New Zealand. As a keen and talented drummer and music lover Rich soon found himself in a band called Majestik. It was whilst performing in the band that he met his beautiful girlfriend Indri which confirmed that Bali was the place he belonged.
Rich settled into a life in Bali which he would never have found back home in England. However, on Friday 1st July 2011 Richard was found lying unconscious on the Denpassar road. While obvious that he had come off his motorbike, the exact circumstances are still unknown but Rich's money and credit cards were missing hinting at foul play being a possibility. The kindness of a passer by ensured that he was taken to a hospital where he was diagnosed with a severe swelling on the brain, a fracture to the face and cuts and bruises.
Rich has been treated at Sanglah Hospital since that day and has not to date regained consciousness. While hospital staff are doing their best to treat Rich's condition resources are poor and conditions are not ideal for Rich's chance at a full recovery. That is why he needs to be bought home to England to receive better medical treatment.
Richard is a kind, thoughtful, loving and generous son, brother, uncle and friend as well as the love of his girlfriend, Indri's life. Furthermore Rich is due to become a father as Indri is pregnant with his baby.
The rising cost of medical treatments and getting Rich medically repatriated to the U.K where he will receive the correct level of treatment will run into tens of thousands of pounds, not the sort of money many people have lying around.
We are desperately appealing for donations to help raise money to bring Rich home. Whatever you can spare would help towards this. Please help with Richard's recovery and improve his chances to reunite with loved ones, friends and his future baby.
Any money raised in excess of what is needed will be donated to anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation as Rich.
