Fundraising continues for inujred rider Darcy Ward
ABOUT $40,000 has been raised at a special benefit meeting for injured Camira speedway rider, Darcy Ward.
The 23-year-old suffered a spinal injury in a crash in Poland in August and is in hospital in England undergoing treatment and rehabilitation.
About $1 million is needed to transport Ward back home to continue his road to recovery.
To help raise funds, more than 2000 people turned up at a Darcy Ward benefit meeting at Gillman Speedway in Adelaide on Sunday to show support for the young rider.
Darcy's dad, George, said about $40,000 had been raised at the meeting.
The money will be added to the $10,000 raised at a charity ride for Darcy, which took place on the weekend, in Ipswich.
George Ward said his son was "blown away" by the show of support and very grateful.
