“I am very lucky to have the help and support of my family, friends, and sponsors who have backed me from day one, along with many other supporters who have helped me physically, emotionally and financially.”

Airbus I have worked for Airbus for 6 years however, in 2014 they kindly allowed me to leave on a long-term sabbatical to allow me time to train and to follow my dream of becoming a Paralympian. Airbus are now officially one of my main sponsors on the road to Rio. Also, back in 2013 Airbus were the first company to help me with raising the funds to purchase a running blade.
I thank Airbus for their support as they not only allowed me to take a sabbatical but have also chosen to sponsor me in my endeavours. This means a lot to me, knowing that my colleagues are following my progress and helping me to fulfil a burning ambition.
