Mr Donne’s Butterfly Effect Story

Kim Donne got called in to work on December 12, 2010 – it was the day his life changed for good. Mr Donne experienced a horrific accident and he’d been hit head on by a truck and pushed about 16ft sideways into trees on a riverbank.

The crash turned the family’s lives upside down. It has left Mr Donne with short term memory loss and he suffers seizures as a result of epilepsy.

Since the accident Mr Donne has visited the Parc y Bocs site in Kidwelly where he enjoys gardening with The Burns Pet Nutrition’s Better Tomorrow programme called the Butterfly Effect group – a rehabilitation programme set up by Hywel Dda with Burns Pet Nutrition Foundation – a neurological therapy service which enhances wellbeing and happiness through meaningful activities.

Chris Cray the community project officer of Better Tomorrow said:

“He’s made so many friends and he gets amazing support. It’s something that he looks forward to every week.

Everyone in the group has a brain injury that affects them. It gives them the feeling that they’re doing something useful.”
