Thirty years ago whilst on holiday in Lanzarote, Tim was involved in a road accident resulting in him being paralysed from the neck down. The trauma was both physical and emotional, trying to adjust to a life where the simplest of tasks depends on help from another person. From being an active young man he had two alternatives, either to give in to his disability or try to do something useful with his life; so he undertook a history degree and made every effort to make the best of things.
Tim hopes that through his scholarship he can inspire others to undertake adventures to challenge themselves, regain lost confidence and no longer feel like second class citizens.
