Laura Collinson from Portsmouth was recently awarded a grant to purchase a handcycle. Paralysed in 1994 following a road traffic accident while travelling in India, Laura spent 13 months in the Salisbury spinal centre.
Laura continues to lead an active life; she has returned to India and been diving in the Red Sea. Back home, she volunteers for the Wheels for All initiative and this specially adapted handcycle allows her to take part in quality cycling activities in and around Portsmouth. She commented: “I’ve had such a great summer down on the seafront!”
