A FAMILY fun day will be held in honour of Swindon scaffolder Jamie Mines today.

The 33-year-old had to have one leg and part of both his arms amputated following an electrical shock accident while at work in Galton Way back in December. He also lost all of his toes on his other foot as a result of his injuries.

Following the accident, he was rushed to Southmead Hospital in Bristol for treatment but nearly three months on, Jamie has been transferred to a hospital in Oxford for rehabilitation.

Now his friends and family hope to build upon the £100,000 already raised for the young dad by holding a family fun day in his home town Frome at the football club today.

The activities will be filmed so that Jamie, a dad to twin girls, can watch it from hospital.

As well as a fundraising page, prizes for an auction have been gathered by Jamie’s friends including a race helmet worn by Jenson Button who used to go to school with Jamie.
