The Gareth Roberts Memorial Fund has already helped numerous members of the rally family, through support and financial contributions made possible by the generosity of donors. Below are some of the drivers and co-drivers already helped by the Fund. We'll be adding more as the giving continues...
David Carney and Ray Fitzpatrick
Following a fatal accident on the Swinton stage of the Jim Clark Rally (May 2014), the Fund helped David and his co-driver Ray get back into a rally car by arranging for them to pilot the ‘double zero’ car on a local Irish rally.
Colin suffered multiple broken bones after the Darrian T9 he was driving left the road on SS2 of the Tour of Epynt (March 2014) and hit a tree head-on. He spent a few months in hospital and the Fund’s donation was greatly appreciated.
Phil was co-driving for Colin Price in the Darrian T9 on the Tour of Epynt and suffered more serious injuries. He is thankfully on the long road to recovery, and really appreciated the help given via the Fund.
John badly bruised his skull after rolling his Citroen DS3 whilst flat in sixth gear on the British Rally Championship’s Todds Leap Rally NI (August 2013). The Fund’s donation was a great help whilst he was off work.
Kevin had to wear a neck brace for six months, after sustaining multiple fractures in a dreadful accident on the Ravens Rock Rally (June 2013). The Fund’s donation came as a big surprise, and certainly helped in his recovery. Sadly Paul Mulcahy, who was driving the Toyota Starlet, died from his injuries.
Andrew was the first person the Fund was able to help. He suffered head injuries and a punctured lung after the Subaru Impreza he was co-driving in crash out of the lead of the UTS Cheviot Keith Knox Rally (November 2012) on Otterburn. Andrew spent two days in intensive care in a Newcastle-upon-Tyne hospital and was unable to work for five months, meaning the Fund’s donation came as a huge help.
