In case you missed, here is a link showing the lovely Claire Lomas lighting the cauldron in Trafalgar Square, London, to open the Paralympic Games - dh's niece was permanently paralysed some 5 years ago after a dreadful accident while competing in a horse trials event and you may recall she spent some 17 days "walking" the London Marathon in the brand new "Rewalk" suit as the first person in UK to use one. She now has her own after years of hard work raising funds, she continues to tirelessly work to raise awareness and monies for Spinal Research and next year plans a London to Paris bike rike! You can read her story, her blog and her funraising initiaves here.
mad! she must be! xx
