BURNLEY rally co-driver Chris Wood is more than 90 per cent of the way to completing his fundraising goal.

Mr Wood, 50, was paralysed in a cycling accident and requires a new wheelchair, hoists and other specialist items.

The father-of-four, backed by his friend Rob Sinfield, set a target of £40,000 and last night had passed the £35,000 mark. The accomplished co-driver worked alongside Jimmy and Alister McRae, Martin Rowe, Jonny Milner and David Higgins over a 10-year career, before retiring in 2001.

Mr Wood, who now requires two full-time carers at his home in Huddersfield, was in hospital for 10 months after his accident in December 2012.

Although he has regained some movement in his left arm, Mr Wood cannot move his and i unable to feel anything.
