Aberdeen’s alternative music scene is to hold a second festival in honour of a talented musician who has been left paralysed from the neck down.
Jon Davie, 28, was on Charlotte Street close to his home in September when he suffered the serious injury – the cause of which remains unknown.
After spending nine months at a specialist hospital in Glasgow, Jon last month returned to Aberdeen where he continues to receive physio at the neurological rehabilitation ward at Woodend Hospital.
Before suffering the injuries, Jon was a self-employed electrician and pals wanted to give him financial support towards his recovery.
Last November, they staged a three-day music festival, called Jon Fest, at Cafe Drummond on Belmont Street, which raised more than £3,000 for him.
Now, the venue has revealed the musicians and their fans had so much fun they will do it all again.
Cafe Drummond’s Ross Calder said: “We’ve decided in agreement with the wonderful Jon Davie, to run another Jon Fest this October.
“As with last year’s amazing effort, all the money raised will go directly to Jon to continue helping his recovery.
“The great news this year is that Jon is now back in Aberdeen so will be able to come along.
“This year’s event will be on October 19 and 20.”
Jon said: “I was in Glasgow for the last festival and the videos looked great.
“It will be great to be there this time.”
His mother, Lynn Davie-Gordon added: “It’s absolutely amazing what people will do.
“It restores your faith in mankind.”
Jon is hoping to move into Craig Court, Milltimber, which provides care for young adults with physical disabilities and has been put on a waiting list for a place.
