A DAD-OF-TWO critically injured in a motorbike accident is raising money for the air ambulance that saved his life.

Lee Anderson, of Kettering, who was airlifted to Walsgrave Hospital after colliding with a telegraph pole on the A508 in April 2009, will hold an 1980s-themed music event at Kettering General Hospital’s social club on Saturday.

Mr Anderson, 46, of Cecil Street, said: “All we are trying to do is raise as much money as we can for something that receives no government funding.”

The Front Cover Band will play at the event and there will be a disco.

There will also be a charity auction with prizes including a London theatre trip, a spa hotel day, a golf day and a trip to the air ambulance’s base, near Coventry.

Mr Anderson lost control of his bike after one of his wheels, which was faulty, slid from under him.

He slid 40 metres before hitting the pole, braking his ribs and collar bone.

Tickets cost £15 each, which includes a chilli and rice meal and a numbered ticket for a meat hamper raffle.
