There’s one Blantyre lad who deserves a very special mention tonight.
We hope you’ll join us in wishing Daniel Dixon a very happy 18th birthday tonight, Monday 9th August 2021. The last year has been difficult for many people, but nothing by comparison to what Daniel has, and is still going through.
Daniel, was involved in a significant vehicle accident whilst riding his bike in Hamilton during September last year. Over 10 months later, Daniel is sadly still in hospital. He’s had numerous operations, become extremely unwell on a few occasions and continues to fight for recovery.
His mother Debbie told us, “Could you maybe give him a wee mention? I can show him when we visit. Although he’s still unable to speak, I believe he can hear and understand.”
Tonight, as well as wishing Daniel Happy Birthday, more importantly we want him and his family know of the tremendous support and best wishes he has in the community in Blantyre and beyond. We hope this brave young man continues to make the best possible recovery and starts to put these difficult days behind him. All the best Daniel.
