Flesh Impressions to donate proceeds to Rushton’s care

Flesh Impressions tattoo artist and owner Harvey bird is at it again. This will be his third fundraising event and this time its to help Jerett Rushton from the Oxford/Pugwash area.

Jerett Rushton lies in a hospital bed in Halifax after a Sept. 22 hit-and-run incident in Oxford.

AMHERST – Flesh Impressions tattoo artist and owner Harvey bird is at it again. This will be his third fundraising event and this time its to help Jerett Rushton from the Oxford/Pugwash area.

Rushton was the victim of a hit and run accident in Oxford. In the early morning of Sept. 22, he was walking back to his hotel room from his aunt and uncles wedding reception.

He has just turned 24 and is always so full of life, love, and being the oldest brother of four other siblings he is very much involved in his little brothers and sisters lives. 

His injuries are extensive. He has two broken bones in his neck – resulting in a halo being placed on him – both arms and legs were also severely broken, and he has been through a couple long surgeries.

Amazingly enough, despite the trauma he has been through, Rushton has kept up his positive and inspirational attitude through it all.

The proceeds of tattoos completed at Flesh Impressions from Oct. 28 to 30 will donated to Rushton to help with his financial and medical needs.

For more information, contact Bird at 660-3044.

There will also be a collection box on site at 86 Church St., Amherst, for anyone not wanting a tattoo but wanting to contribute.

Geographic location: AMHERST, Oxford, Pugwash

    This is horrible! I've know the Rushton boys for years and I could never imagine something this horrid happening. We NEED to find out who did this and make sure nothing like it ever happens again. I'm utterly shocked, and am about to get some ink!

    Thank you Harvey. I may not live in Amherst anymore, but it is in reading of men like Harvey who step up and stand in the gap with a spirit of compassion that reminds me why I love my home town so much. May your efforts be multiplied and be a blessing to this young man!
