Almeria community rally for Brit expat

SPECIAL THANKS’: Paul, back left, receives a donation from the Antas community.

EXPATRIATE plasterer/builder Paul Morrison has spoken of his gratitude after the community pulled together to help him pay for medical treatment.

The dad-of-three, 45, was last year diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, forcing him to walk on crutches, while his speech has also deteriorated.

He is in August due to visit Russia for pioneering stem cell transplantation treatment in Moscow, with the procedure currently unavailable in the UK or Spain.

“We are nearly there, we have raised £41,500 out of our aim of £45,000.

“We have been to London to collect our Russian visas.

“I would like to give special thanks to my local community of Antas who with the help of all the local businesses raised over €2,000!

“The offers of help and the generosity I have received has validated my decision to move my family here over 13 years ago.

“Viva Almeria.”
