Salvation Army help crash victim

A man badly injured in a car accident has been receiving help from Salvation Army volunteers to keep his garden in check.

The 41-year-old from New Addington, Surrey, was left with a broken arm and leg and required several operations after a van collided with him as he was walking along the road.

After hearing of the man's accident, his local Salvation Army church arranged for volunteers to go in and trim his bushes, cut the grass and dig up weeds in the front and back garden.

The act of kindness was part of the church's initiative to go out into the community to participate in service schemes.

The church leader involved in organising the project said, "It's only a small thing that we've been able to do…but often small things make a big difference, especially during hard times."

The car crash victim said of their gardening, "It looked great. There were seven of them so they were all done in an hour, but it would have taken me all day."

Since the accident, it's unknown if the victim will make a compensation claim for the injuries he suffered from the car accident.
