“We were delighted to sponsor The LimbPower games this year, not only seeing everyone being able to get back out after the recent lockdowns but to see the array of sports that are available to the limb different community. We work with many of our clients who have suffered an amputation and limb loss through accidents and illnesses and have seen the positive impact that the introduction to sports through a rehabilitation programme has had on their lives and their wellbeing. The LimbPower Games is a great opportunity to try new sports that they may not have even considered participating in before their limb loss. ”
