Andy from England's Wheelchair Rugby 7s

A little about me

I’m Andy Holley

Eight years ago, I had a motorcycle accident. I broke my back, my ribs, my shoulder blade, my collar bone, punctured both my lungs, spent 2 weeks in a coma then 6 months in Oswestry recovering. This left me a paraplegic and a permanent wheelchair user. Since that life changing experience occurred, I refused to let it defeat me. Basically, if somebody says, 'You can't' to me, my reaction is 'I bet I can'.

My cup is always half full as opposed to half empty which I believe is the right attitude to have whether you have a disability or not.
