About Team Pru
In December 2011, Lt. Prunella Ellwood was driving back to her barracks in North Luffenham, near Peterborough, when she was involved in a terrible car accident on the A1. The accident caused severe brain damage and has left her in a low responsive state, requiring constant medical care. Her family hope to start being able to bring her home for short visits, but before they can, need to adapt their home and purchase specialist equipment to cater for Pru's needs. Any money raised will help to make this hope a reality.
How We're Currently Raising Funds
