When I was discharged by the RAF, I was in a pretty bad place mentally as well as physically. I eventually found employment, and my rehabilitation was going well, but I missed being part of a sport. When I heard about Para Ice Hockey and having already played field hockey in my past, I thought this is the sport for me.
The freedom this sport gives me is beyond words, normally I have crutches or I am in a wheelchair, but being free on the ice is liberating and being able to play a physical game again, is amazing! This sport has given me joy and I can’t stop smiling when I’m taking part.
I love being part of our club family and showing my daughter that no matter what life hands to you, you can do anything if you set your mind to it.
