Friends in the community have rallied to organise a fundraising event and bring home a man stuck in hospital in Mexico.

Kings Langley Football Club groundskeeper Trevor Dealey suffered a heart attack on May 11 while on holiday, which has left him in a critical condition and battling sepsis.

The 58-year-old’s family remain by his side as much as possible but are desperate to bring him home to receive specialised care at Watford General.

This will require a medical flight, something that is expected to cost around £100,000.

Acting quickly to help raise money, Kings Langley residents have organised Trevor’s Day for bank holiday Monday (May 27).

The bar will be open at Kings Langley FC from 2pm for a family day with activities including a raffle, music, entertainment, auctions, football games and face painting.

All money raised will go towards the GoFundMe page, which is currently at £24,107 as of Wednesday afternoon.

As the event is being put together on short notice, the organisers are still looking for local businesses and people to get involved and offer things like raffle prizes or entertainment.

Boxmoor Social Club will also be hosting an “extra special” quiz night tomorrow (May 23) to raise funds for the cause.
