I READ last week’s report about war veteran Andy Reid, the triple amputee, who has completed a series of challenges to mark 10 years since he suffered life changing injuries in Afghanistan.

Andy you are a true inspiration to those of us who are ‘almost’ able bodied yet allow our difficulties to prevent us achieving what we know is possible within us.

To this end I am starting my own year of challenges which will start small but I hope will increase in difficulty to enable and empower me to be a better person too!

Thank you Andy Reid, for all you gave and all you do.
