We were proud to be able to support charity Spinal Injuries Scotland (SIS) annual BBQ and activities day for the fourth year, taking place on Wednesday 27th June at the wonderful grounds of Castle Semple in Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park.

The day began at 10am and welcomed members from Spinal Injuries Scotland and patients from nearby Queen Elizabeth National Spinal Injuries Unit where the charity provides peer support and advice.

The aim of this day is to give people with a spinal injury the opportunity to try something new and perhaps something they thought they would not be able to do again. There was a variety of water and land activities available including Hand biking, Kayaking, Sailing, Canoeing and Powerboating – all suitable for wheelchair users.
