A local carer has told how a death-defying fall eight years ago transformed him from a self-centred playboy into a committed charity worker.
Perth man Andrew Blair, 38, nearly died when he sustained a severe brain injury falling four floors from a balcony at his then girlfriend’s flat while at a party in Dubai in 2010.
After four months in a coma the project manager, now a support worker for charity Enable Scotland, was taken home, where he began the process of learning to walk and talk again.
He has thanked those who helped him with his latest six-month fund-raising drive to help others who are living with learning difficulties or a brain injury.
Working with Tesco, Andrew organised four fundraising days, collecting on the shop floor for Enable Scotland and raising more than £900.
That followed a similar collection for charity Mindspace in 2017.
