A Kettering man whose life was saved by an air ambulance crew after he suffered serious injuries in a motorbike crash is hosting a music event to say thank you and to raise money to pay for the mission which saved him.

Lee Anderson, 48, from Cecil Street, suffered broken ribs and a broken collar bone in the accident on the A508 between Market Harborough and Pitsford almost five years ago.

Mr Anderson took a tumble from his bike when his front wheel slipped. He slid 40 metres and struck a telegraph pole.

It was only the intervention of Dr Neil Thomson, one of the crew of the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance, which saved his life after the doctor inserted a chest drain at the roadside.

The dad-of-two spent a week in hospital recuperating and later had an operation on his collar bone.

On Saturday, May 17, Mr Anderson is hosting a school disco night at the Kettering General Hospital Social Club where there will be live music and a late night disco finishing at midnight.

Tickets for the evening, which begins at 7.30pm, cost £10, which includes a chilli. To buy tickets phone 07943 805636 or 07793 059043.

There will also be a charity auction and raffle.
