nearly £100,000 has now been raised by Adam Pickles’ devoted friends and family across the globe.
The cost of his Thai hospital care, medical repatriation and legal fees has so far reached about £130,000.
Fundraising efforts are continuing towards further legal fees and the cost of Adam’s future care and rehabilitation.
Mr and Mrs Pickles, who had to remortgage their home to meet up-front costs, urged anyone holidaying or working abroad to take out insurance and check clauses carefully after Adam’s insurer refused to pay out.
