to buy a new specialist wheelchair for my friend, Peter Moore, to continue to play basketball, rugby and tennis
About the project
Peter was saving up to go on his first boys holiday in 1981 and decided to save money by cycling to and from work. Unfortunately Peter was hit by a bus and suffered a broken back and was subsequently paralysed for two years. Although doctors told Peter he would never walk again his strength and determination proved them wrong. Slowly he learned to walk with sticks although he still needed his chair. With the help and support of his occupational therapist Peter joined West of Scotland (WOS) basketball team eventually becoming coach. During his time as coach Peter worked closely with disabled children and has raised hundreds of pound in sponsorship to help the kids join the competitive leagues. Peter is an inspiration to all around him and remarkable man who loves playing sport and has done for over twenty years. He also plays rugby and golf as well as playing and coaching tennis. Now it is Peters turn as his chair is no longer of use to him due wear and tear etc. He would never ask anyone for help and struggles on regardless. I am appealing to all kind hearts to help me help Peter to get back in the circuit of sport again.
