So…my son Alex was badly beaten up by 3 lads for no reason at all and had his phone smashed to bits. Alex is 17 and autistic, his phone is his life (like many other teenagers) I’ve had lots of people message suggesting I start a go fund me to help him get a new phone as people are saying they would love to help.
Alex doesn’t have a bad bone in his body and was walking home from his girlfriends when he was jumped, in the dark, punched, kicked and had his phone smashed to bits. Why? We don’t know but one thing I do know is that I thank my lucky stars today that he wasn’t more badly injured or worse.
he has just started a new job at Sports Direct and done two shifts, but now, due to his injuries he may be off for a couple of weeks and this has also really upset him.
I hate asking and if it was a case of him breaking his phone then tough but he has done nothing wrong and is now scared to leave the house, even to go to his girlfriends. So obviously he would normally keep in touch via his phone, which he now can’t do.
if you can help, it really would be much appreciated
