Call to fans to help Robbo for a quicker return to the track

Its been a few weeks of injury for the Newcastle "BTS" Diamonds and Stuart Robson is currently undergoing specialist treatment for his multiple breaks his finger received a few weeks ago.
The complex break will need much plating, pinning, manipulation and physio to get the Diamond back on a bike, and a sooner-than-later return will benefit both rider and team.
Robbo takes up the story from his own Facebook feed: "I had an operation on my finger yesterday morning, the bone was in at least four pieces or maybe more the surgeon said.
"They put a plate across the top of my finger and fixed it in with six screws. I can now start moving my finger as much as I can but have been told not to lift anything as it still unstable until the bone has knitted together."
A "Just Giving" page has been set up in order to fund a fast-track recovery programme and every penny donated will see the process to get Robbo back on a bike that bit quicker.
Stuart continued: "Any money that is donated on this page will be used to get private treatment such as laser, I will see Steve Williams who a lot of riders use for this treatment, I will also look into going into an oxygen chamber. Thanks."
