THE FAMILY of a Hampshire teenager has launched a community interest company (CIC) in his name. 

George Dillon, from Ower, died in May after he crashed his car into a tree on Lee Lane.

A procession of around 100 tractors rolled through the Hampshire countryside in July as a tribute to the 19-year-old.

Now his family has launched George Dillon Only a Dream Away CIC.

George's mother Angie Dillon said: “We tragically lost our son George Dillon in a car accident May of this year on Lee Lane, Romsey.

"Very sadly amongst other injuries, he suffered an irreversible traumatic brain injury and succumbed to his injuries two days after when his life support was removed.

“Our son was such a loving young man who would help anyone if he could and so in forming George Dillon Only a Dream Away CIC we are taking strength in the hope we can help others in honour of our son. 

“We aim to assist survivors who have sadly suffered a traumatic/acquired brain injury by providing short-term respite care/therapies where needed, specialised equipment, mobility aids or small home adaptations (ie. walk in showers, stairlifts, lowered work surfaces, ramps etc.) which could enable them to come home to their loved ones.

“George was a huge fan of country music and the farming lifestyle. He was known by everybody to wear his beloved cowboy boots wherever he went.”

Mrs Dillon added that an event is planned for next year to celebrate what would have been George's 21st birthday.

She said: “We felt there would be no better way to celebrate what would have been his 21st birthday next year than to host a Honky Tonk Hoedown.

"We have some great country music and American country themed events throughout the day to enable us to raise as much money as possible to get his charity off to a great start.

"We are appealing to any local companies that feel they would like to support us by sponsoring us for £500. In return we are able to offer two free passes and will promote/advertise the company at our event. 

“If sponsorship is not an option but anybody would like to help us on our way by donating a prize for our raffle this would be gratefully received.”
