Disability: Left leg below knee amputee

Lives: Peterborough

In my youth and younger years I would constantly play various sports in lower levels, however after being injured in the Forces, my participation in sport slowly but surely decreased.

After 17 various operations I had my lower left leg amputated. After that I spent a number of years just sitting around until I saw a photo of me on my timeline on Facebook and I realised I wasn’t happy with what I saw, so started thinking then.

I thought that there must be more I could do, so I took to Google and came across Inspire Peterborough. I was invited to an Inclusive Skating session one Friday at Planet Ice in Bretton to try Para Ice hockey and I loved it!

All I can say is thank you Inspire Peterborough, I am hooked and hopefully I can only get better.
