Fundraising Pasta Cookery Lesson
Grant Andrews, 30, from Worthing, who suffering severe head and chest injuries in France, following a 30-foot fall onto Tarmac in last May.
It is understood he fell through a hedge, and down an embankment.
He was there to take part in the Scumrun, a four-day charity drive across Europe.
Grant, who was travelling with a friend, had reached Strasbourg, and was to start the final leg of the journey the next day, when the incident occurred.
Chris Thwaites, 33, of Singleton Crescent, whose brother was travelling with Grant, said what had happened was “surreal”.
He said: “My brother and Grant have been best mates through school and I’ve seen them grow up together, so the whole thing is really surreal.
“He is a happy-go-lucky guy, who will help anyone out and he doesn’t expect anything in return.”
Although Grant had medical insurance, it only covers a proportion of his care, and around £280-a-day extra is required.
To raise funds for medical care there was a charity fund raising night in worthing and it was Beurre Blanc Cookery Schools pleasure to supply a pasta cookery lesson to raise funds.
