On 22nd May 2017, my life changed forever. I was the closest survivor of the Manchester Arena bombing which tragically took the lives of 22 people. A bolt went straight through me, severed my spinal cord and left me paralysed below the waist.
The NHS saved my life, but it was an amazing charity, the Spinal Injuries Association (SIA) who gave me the hope, confidence and practical skills to start again.
I'll be climbing Mt Kilimanjaro using a specially adapted wheelchair with the team who helped save my life, to raise £1million for SIA.
