Richard Hammond's BBC Lifeline appeal for The Children's Trust

Duration: 08:45

Top Gear presenter Richard Hammond presents an appeal on behalf of The Children's Trust, the UK's leading charity for children with brain injuries. This is a condition Richard knows well; when he was pulled from the wreckage of his high-speed car crash, he spent months recovering from a serious head injury.

The film features Anne-Marie and her four-year-old son Charlie, whose brain was starved of oxygen when he nearly drowned on a family holiday. Charlie was left with severe disabilities, but Anne-Marie believes he has made the best recovery possible as a result of the rehabilitation, education and therapy provided during his stay at the Children's Trust's specialist residential centre. This has helped the whole family to rebuild their lives.
