CONNOR’S STORY_

Connor is an incredible role model for determination, resilience, sheer grit, and passion.

He established his charity in 2015 after two strokes following a rugby head injury. Despite the ongoing challenges he faces, Connor is still passionate about rugby and is committed to raising awareness and enriching the lives of other young people with an acquired brain injury. 

Connor has spoken at the House of Lords, to over 70 UK sports teams and hundreds of medical professionals about his experience hoping to improve the resources and treatment for other young people with ABI.  While studying at college, Conor organises charity events in Hull, and offers valuable support and mentorship to young people, visiting local hospitals. He has also raised over £20,000 for the charity, Life for a Kid, for a sensory centre in Hull for children with special needs.
