Cameron’s Story

Cameron, aged 17 from Wigan, received his Diana Award from Andrew ‘Freddie’ Flintoff.

My story started when I was 9 years old and I suffered serious injuries following a skiing accident during a school holiday. I fell 40 feet on to compacted ice breaking both legs, dislocating both ankles and breaking my arm. During my recovery I spent 6 weeks in a wheelchair and it was during this time I realised how difficult it must be to play sport and it was this that inspired me to organise a sponsored walk to raise funds for the Wigan disability Sports Forum where I managed to raise over £5,650. This money has helped buy specialist equipment for disabled athletes in Wigan.
