Spinal Inuries Association ambassador Danielle Lineker shares why she’s getting involved in the charity’s new awards ceremony.
In 2007 my brother Kaid sustained a spinal cord injury whilst on a night out with friends.
Rebuilding a life with spinal cord injury has been a challenge, not just for Kaid, but the whole family. It was of great benefit, to us all, to have the advice and support of the Spinal Injuries Association (SIA).
It is because of the help my family received that I am committed to supporting SIA and the launch of their new event, Women in Spinal Cord Injury.
This unique awards event has been launched to recognise and celebrate the outstanding contribution women make to the lives of spinal cord injured people, which includes dedicated health care professionals, enthusiastic fundraisers and inspirational carers.
The event culminates in a glamorous awards evening on 6 June at the Botanical Gardens, Birmingham, where award winners will receive their Women in Spinal Cord Injury award from a coveted SIA Ambassador.
I invite you to get involved. Nominate your colleagues, your friends, your family and together lets celebrate their achievements and the impact they have had on the SCI community.
Nominate online at www.spinal.co.uk/page/WISCI from 2 January.
Join me and SIA as we say THANK YOU to the Women in Spinal Cord Injury.
