A GoFundMe page has been setup in memory of Jack Sumner.

Below is an article in the Stoke Sentinel

Thousands of pounds have been raised in memory of a 22-year-old man who lost his fight for life in hospital.

The online fund-raising appeal has been set up following the death of Jack Sumner, from Chesterton.

It is raising money for Cobridge-based charity Headway North Staffordshire which supports people with brain injuries.

The former Chesterton Community Sports College pupil had been admitted to the Royal Stoke University Hospital on June 25 after being attacked.

But he never actually left the Royal Stoke and passed away four months later on Wednesday, October 14.

Best friend Conna Brown, aged 22, of Chesterton, has set up the online appeal. It has already raised more than £2,500.

A 17-year-old boy – who cannot be named for legal reasons – was initially arrested and charged on suspicion of wounding and possessing an offensive weapon. He remains in custody.
