A GoFundMe campaign has been set up to bring Tom “Dynamite Kid” Billington back home from a care home with a target goal of £20,000, or close to $25,000.
The campaign was started by his wife Dot who wrote that for the past 13 months, Tom has been in a care home due to recent strokes and health issues. “We have tried everything possible to get him back home, however unfortunately as we can not afford the full time care and the facilities to assist with his mobility he is unable to leave the care home,” she wrote.
Dot explained how they never received any royalties from WWE and the company never reached out for help and support. “We have never ever asked for help from anybody, but we have been left with no choice. This will save his life,” she added.
