Louise Evans from Newhaven, a young mother of two, suffered life-changing injuries back in May when she was the victim of a freak horse riding accident.

Louise, an experienced horse rider, was on a young horse who reared forcefully, smashing the 34-year-old’s face and throwing her to the ground backwards. She landed on the back of her head and, as a result, is now paralysed from the chest down and is currently in Stoke Mandeville hospital.

A former waitress at Brewers Fare, Louise is hoping to be discharged in November, however, spinal specialists have said it is highly unlikely that Louise will ever walk again.

Family, friends and local businesses have set about fundraising for Louise’s rehabilitation with the main focus on obtaining a bespoke wheelchair for her to be able to move around and – in her words - ‘whizz’ around after her nine-year-old daughter and 15-year-old son. “All I want,” said Louise, “is to get home to my two babies, mum, brother and family and friends. I’m heartbroken being here so far away but I promise you, I’m going to do this and push my body to the limits to get back to Newhaven.”

As part of the fundraising, local business EasyTone is holding a cake sale and raffle this Friday, the 17th of September, at 16 High Street (the old library). There will be a host of delicious cakes on offer as well as a huge raffle of products, gifts and booze with prizes donated by local Newhaven-based businesses.

The fundraiser will get underway at 9am and raffle tickets are just £1 each, or £5 for six.
