"Thank you so much to everyone involved for a fantastic week. I got everything I wanted from the course as well as so much more. I have gained in confidence in wheelchair skills and am looking forward to trying out some of the things I have learnt. I really enjoyed spending the week with a fantastic group of people and am feeling the 'Back Up Blues' already!"

“Seeing the improvement in the participants’ wheelchair skills and confidence was by far the highlight. The comedy club was really funny and there were some great moves on the dance floor afterwards.”
