The charity provided assistance to the Henderson family in bringing Aaron’s body back to Northern Ireland.

A British man, 35-year-old Paul Waugh, originally from Middlesborough, has appeared in court in Majorca on suspicion of killing the Co Londonderry man.

Majorca Daily Bulletin reported that the nightclub bouncer stands accused of fatal aggression while a Spanish man is facing charges of retaining important information.

It is understood the results of the autopsy confirmed that Aaron died as a result of the blow to the head.

Speaking to the News Letter last week, Aaron’s heartbroken father Paul Henderson revealed that he and his wife made the decision to donate Aaron’s organs, adding: “It was a hard decision to make, but it gives us some comfort as we know he is still out there, and someone is happy. At least we know he didn’t die in vain.”
