Garbade chose a “Burn Charity” being close to his heart, due to the fact that a really great tabler, friend and brother was badly burnt in a motorcar accident on the 7th December 2014. Past Round Table Southern Africa Tabler of the year and Sandown RT150 41er, Mr Ross Crichton, survived the ordeal and has lived the recovery process.
Burns are one of the most common household injuries, especially among children. The term “burn” means more than the burning sensation associated with this injury. Burns are characterized by severe skin damage that causes the affected skin cells to die.
Most people can recover from burns however, serious burns require immediate emergency medical care to prevent complications and death, unfortunately this kind of emergency medical care as well as the post trauma medical treatment is long and comes at huge financial expense!
