"April is always a special month for me, it is only when I sit down, take a bit of time and look back that I realise some of the amazing opportunities that I had. I made some life long friends and shared some of the best moments of my life with them. We have been through thick and thin but came out stronger on the other end."

"During my rehabilitation in Headley Court I constantly made small progressions by setting myself new targets or goals to work towards. And it was here at Headley that I heard about the Walking With The Wounded Challenge, to walk unsupported to the Geographical North Pole and I thought that is the perfect challenge.  After the initial interview stages I wasn't selected for the team as I was still to severely wounded at that stage. It was a few months down the line at a stage where I was back to full strength and walking again that I heard there are still two spaces on the North Pole team left. I got back in touch with the organisers and after a selection weekend in Devon I was part of the team."
