In September 2013 I moved to Manchester and BASIC provided me with a place to work, they provided me with therapy and education in their memory workshop which I still attend.
I have come a long way in my recovery since then, and these days I write a blog from my website. Soon I will be speaking at Salford uni and then working alongside West Yorkshire Fire Service to deliver road safety talks to over 3000 new drivers at Wakefield College From September to December.
Without the Brain And Spinal Injury Centre (BASIC) I don't know where I would be and I really cannot thank them enough. There are hundreds of people affected by brain injury that rely on BASIC for therapy, education, exercise or just somewhere to socialise.
BASIC is truly fantastic place and to show thanks I am running 13 miles in this years Great North Run. Please sponsor me, brain injury can happen suddenly to anyone you never know when you could need them!
