One of our new disability athletes, Dean Bousfield, is a former soldier who was almost critically injured in Afganistan in 2010, after being shot in the head.
Dean has been in full time rehab or hospital for 3 1/2 years and, after being told that he would never talk, stand or walk again, has miraculously recovered to the point where he going to undertake a 335mile bike ride from Brussels to Paris in June this year.
Dean joined Doncaster AC a few moths ago and has been training with Diana’s group since. He is proving to be a talented thrower.
If anyone would like to donate to the charity Bike Ride that Dean is doing for Help for Heroes then he would really appreciate your support. You can donate at his JustGiving page:
