On 14 April the Southern Spinal Injuries Trust welcomed 150 invited guests to an evening of celebration to mark 10 years of the charity’s work supporting people with spinal cord injury across the south and south west. With the evening sponsored by Irwin Mitchell solicitors and use of the historic Salisbury Guildhall donated by Mayor Andrew Roberts, guests saw a display of photographs from throughout SSIT’s history. Patron Sir Hayden Phillips presented co-founder Sally Mathieson with flowers, and spoke of the charity’s current fundraising focus to provide powered add-on devices such as eMotion wheels and the Smartdrive. A beautiful Anniversary Cake (baked by trustee Emma Crofton) was shared with everyone who attended, and guests were invited to save the date for SSIT’s upcoming event at Highclere Castle on 5 July.
