Shoosmiths’ Denise Stephens said:
“We’re incredibly proud of our relationship with Back Up. We know and can see the real difference they are making to people’s lives."
“This campaign has already been massively successful, capturing the imagination of some the world’s most famous people and is sure to just grow and grow.”
The campaign has been masterminded by Back Up patron, TV presenter and campaigner, Sophie Morgan. Sophie sustained a spinal cord injury aged 18 in a road traffic accident that left her paralysed from the chest down.
“I know first-hand how extraordinary Back Up’s services really are, having benefited from them myself. Their multi-activity courses challenge what’s possible with a spinal cord injury and showed me that I could still lead an active life,” she said.
“All of Back Up’s services are delivered by other people affected by spinal cord injury. They know how challenging it can be to adjust, but they are with you for every part of your journey. I’m thrilled with all the support for Heels for Wheels so far – it’s so exciting and will truly make a difference to this wonderful charity.”
