BPS trainees car wash for sick man in US hospital
Police recruits will hold a carwash next weekend to raise funds for a man facing hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills.
All the cash raised by Recruit Foundation Course 80 will be donated to Dandre Outerbridge. Mr Outerbridge has racked up more than $300,000 in bills for treatment at Mount Sinai Medical Centre, in Miami Beach, Florida.
He was hit by viral encephalitis while on holiday last November.
Jeanna Scott and Andre Woods, his parents, only found out that he did not have overseas coverage on his health insurance after they arrived in hospital.
Mr Outerbridge is still in the Florida hospital.
The event will be held at the Rubis gas station on Warwick’s South Road on Saturday from 8am to 4pm.
