Community Champion - Sean Bailey

Sean suffered serious neck and spinal injuries playing football and thought he would never walk again. His determination to defy the odds means he has recovered, although is unable to run or play himself.
He therefore decided to put his energy and love into creating the club for anyone with cerebral palsy or brain injuries.
