The Spinal Injuries Association (SIA) is the leading support organisation for those affected by spinal cord injury in the UK.
The SIA was founded in 1974 and still provides services for the 35,000 people living with spinal cord injury.
The SIA holds an annual Rebuilding Lives Award Ceremony in Birmingham and 2016 sees two people connected to SPIRIT nominated and shortlisted for an award.
Heather Edwards has worked at the Oswestry Spinal Injury Centre for many years. She has been instrumental in supporting the work of the SPIRIT charity and the SPIRIT trustees were delighted to learn of her shortlisting for the ‘Outstanding Achievement’ award at Oswestry SCIC.
Jonathan Fogerty is a trustee of SPIRIT and a former trustee of the SIA. He was chair of the SIA for three years between 2011 and 2014. Jonathan has been nominated and shortlisted in the ‘Inspirational Adult’ category at the awards.
The SPIRIT trustees would like to express their good luck wishes to Jonathan and Heather and we hope they enjoy themselves at the ceremony.
A write up on the evening’s events will be posted here shortly.
