Laura Collinson


A grant to fund the purchase of a handcycle was awarded to Laura Collinson from Portsmouth. 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. Laura commented: “I’ve had such a great summer down on the seafront!”
