I created this page to reinforce the work I do with schools, business owners and leaders.
“Thanks again for yesterday, it was everything I was hoping for the children and more! I must also add, Ive never had such positive feedback from all of the staff – ‘the best speaker we’ve had in the school’ … stick that on your CV!”

“Thank you very, very much for presenting at our Away Day on Wednesday. You were the clear highlight of the day for all the people who attended. It was also lovely that you stayed behind for photos and brought your medals for us to see. Yours was an inspirational story, and our staff were moved by it, and motivated by it”
Carol Meredith – NHS North Locality Support Services Manager – Mental Health
Andy, thanks so much for coming in to Prestons school, he was so motivated by your visit. I have to say we have had lots of visits to the school but none with the impact you’ve had. Thanks so much. – Hayley Edwards – Thornwell Primary School
“Hi Andy, you visited my daughters schools this week ( Coalway junior school) and I haven’t stoped hearing about it since. She throughly enjoyed the sports you did with them outside and was fascinated when you took off your leg and showed them your running blade. Her highlight was getting to hold your gold medal. Thank you for a fabulous day and sharing your story, she’s come home truly inspired”

Hi Andy, you went to St John’s school and my son Harvey loved it! He now knows who you are when I watch the sports on you and now has more of an interest when I watch the sports as I watch alot of the running, Olympics and things like that! When he came home from school the day you went he didn’t shut up about you! It was lovely to see him home from school with such energy and enthusiasm which doesn’t happen all the time. Hope that makes sense xx

My 5 year old son was so excited when Andy visited Yorkley school. He was very inspired by Andy and his story but it was Andy’s description of how he can change his leg to his blade, my son said ‘it clicks on like a Lego brick’. Which as a parent feel this will stop the stigma of people with disabilities and what they can achieve. Andy is proof of that.
