Chris Stewart, Partner and Head of Digby Brown’s Serious Injury team, was proud to have sponsored the day for the fifth year in a row.

He said: “This day out continues to get bigger and better every year and its popularity proves just how vital these events are to survivors of spinal cord injuries.

“Working in the serious injury team at Digby Brown means we see the incredible difference the Queen Elizabeth National Spinal Injuries Unit and Spinal Injuries Scotland make to people’s lives.

“That’s why we believe it’s so important to support events like this to ensure their incredible work continues.”
