Tangle Tree

Am I dead? Hazel asks, as her mother Ivy regards past and future. Where is the thread? In the wool, the yarn? Can it be found in a Pas de Chat? Or does it lie with Sleeping Dogs?

JDJB and TLBB Productions' play 'TangleTree' is a fictionalised story based on research.

Many people came forward with their stories of survival through brain injury. Stories of despair, hope, bravery and love.

More recently, after seeing an item on the BBC about Steve Richards and his Mum Ali, we felt we wanted to help raise awareness of Steve, his need for funding and his continuing journey.

Their story touched our hearts:

Steve Richards

Ali says:-

“Nothing can prepare you for a phone call like the one I received on 23rd December 2014.It was to say my son Steve had been found unconscious at 2am on a roadside in Thailand with severe brain injuries…. Over four years later, and battling the odds, we need to raise a total of £5,000 to cover urgently needed specialist physio and hydrotherapy to help Steve to walk again.”

He has fought hard, and can now smile, but Ali his mother waits for the day when she hears her son say “Hello Mum”.

Steve and Ali desperately need your help.
