Volunteer & Gym member Michael
I was introduced to Ability Bow by one of the many physio’s that I had visit me during my recovery and the first time I came to the gym and was introduced to Isaac. I was amazed at the service that they run, the atmosphere is that of one big family and I felt immediately at home when I came to train and actually started to look forward to that day of the week.

“I thought I would tell you about my journey.In 2013 I nearly lost my life to meningococcal encephalitis, with the added complications of septicaemia and multi organ failure. On the road to recovery I lost my mum at the age of 57 to cancer which spread rapidly through her body and my world was completely turned upside down, I dreaded leaving the house and went through a very dark period.

When I heard that Ability Bow were looking for volunteers I then decided that my big chance was in front of me, they have given me real purpose in life and I now look forward to going to work rather than waking up and wishing I could just curl up and the day would be over.

This is just a note to say thank you for giving me the passion to live my life again and I will happily give you and the ability bow family 100% of my time without hesitation. Thanks again.”
