Town fan Tom using his artwork to thank those at Addenbrooke's who saved his life

“It will be well over a year before I am well enough to return to my normal daily life so I am using this time to draw, the results of which will be posted on my Facebook page at

“One of my biggest battles with being immobile for a prolonged period of time is not the physical pain, but the mental frustration of keeping my mind active,” Tom told the Club website.

During his nine week stay in hospital, doodling, sketching and drawing played a major part in Tom’s mental recovery and now he’s looking to use those skills to say thank you in his own way to Addenbrooke’s.

As well as saving his life, the hospital staff managed to save his right leg, which is now held together by a metal frame and rods as it heals over the next year.

In October 2014, Town fan Tom Callis had a serious motorbike accident and would have died if not for the paramedics at the scene and the urgent actions of the staff at Addenbrooke’s Hospital.”
