A fundraising initiative for Sean Cox, who sustained serious and life altering injuries earlier this year while attending a football game in Liverpool, has raised over €147,000.

Among those donating was former Liverpool Chief Executive Christian Purslow who made a €5,600 donation.

Sean, who worked for many years at Dundalk company, Precision Engineering, has according to friends and family been taking 'small but crucially important steps on his road to recovery over the past number of months.' Sean has recently commenced a program of rehabilitation in Dun Laoghaire and following this will continue to require ongoing and intensive long term care and support.

But his journey to recovery will be a long and difficult one. With ongoing care and treatment a necessity over the coming months and years, the fund has been set up to raise €2 million.

A series of events have been planned to raise funds for Sean's ongoing care, including a fun run which took place yesterday (Monday) in his hometown of Dunboyne, Co. Meath.
