Event: Walk for Wards 2023, on 9 July 2023


I recently spent four nights in Salisbury Hospital following a paragliding accident which resulted in seven fractured vertebrae, a broken rib, extensive bruising and a pneumothorax which is an air pocket in the fluid sac which surrounds the lungs.

During my stay I was so grateful to The Stars Appeal for the free wi-fi which I took full advantage of. It was also invaluable to my family when they visited as I wasn’t much by way of entertainment, and it took their minds off worrying and made it possible to google my injuries etc..

I've long been a huge believer in the health benefits of walking, particularly where the back is concerned. Now I'm placing my faith in that belief to help me build back better.

After a month I'm able to walk very slowly around the beautiful hill-town of Shaftesbury in North Dorset, so I hope that I can do the 3K Walk for the Wards on the 9th of July, and that I can raise some money for the Stars Appeal.
