THE story of Joe Robinson is one that cannot help but inspire others. Given practically no chance of surviving after a car crash on the A34, he is about to receive a masters from Oxford Brookes University.

The staff at the John Radcliffe Hospital’s neuro intensive care unit deserve the highest praise for their part in his recovery.

And so it is fitting Joe’s sister is raising money for the unit by climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.

The Oxford Mail wishes her the best of luck in her endeavours and hopes she gets plenty of support from donors.

Regardless, the family can take great pride in the fight and spirit shown by Joe and Grace.
