Charlie motivates others after brain injury

Every year, thousands of children a year suffer a brain injury - through accident or illness. The effects can be devastating. Now there is a campaign to raise awareness - and to help with the rehabilitation of youngsters.

The Children's Trust - based in Surrey - offers community support for children and young people who are affected by a brain injury. One supporter is Charlie Fogarty who was planning a career as a professional footballer until he was hit by a car and badly injured. Kevin Ashford takes up his story.
