Trevor Moore has done it! Just six months ago the 62-year-old was lying in Wellington Hospital's intensive care unit after suffering horrific injuries when cutting a tree in the rural backblocks. Now, in under a week, he's walked over 250-kilometres from his Dannevirke home back to Wellington hospital to raise money for the rescue helicopter that saved his life. Our reporters Jimmy Ellingham and Kate Judson filed this report.
