This year we are delighted to be donating £500 to Back Up – our chosen charity.

Back Up is a wonderful charity that exists to transform the lives of everyone affected by spinal cord injury, inspiring them to get the most out of life.

For over 30 years, Back Up has helped people rebuild their confidence and independence after sustaining a devastating spinal cord injury as well as supporting their families too. Back Up’s award-winning, practical services are there to help people and those around them adapt to the world of spinal cord injury and get back to doing the things they love doing.

Today, Back Up is at the forefront of helping people adjust positively to spinal cord injury – because the support is provided by people who have been there and can understand what you are going through. Back Up are there for people in their darkest hours – and will support them right through to getting back up to living life to the full.

That means delivering a range of services to build confidence and independence back into people’s lives and offering a support network when it is needed most. It also means challenging perceptions of disability – that life with spinal cord injury can be a full and active one.
