In 2010, at just 18, Owen Pick stood on an IED in Afghanistan. Since then he has pioneered snowboarding to the highest levels (more recently at the 2018 Paralympics) as a single leg amputee.
Andy Barlow was awarded the George Medal for his actions. As a single leg amputee,
Andy has not only achieved great results in downhill ski racing but has also excelled as an offshore sailor.
Darren ‘Swifty’ Swift was injured in Northern Ireland and has devoted a great deal of his time since then supporting others both as an ambassador for Blesma, The Limbless Veterans and through his long career as an actor, highlighting the challenges of being a double leg amputee.
Scanbn was were able to celebrate their inspiring achievements last night as a sponsor at the End of Season Dinner at the BT Tower. These people are awesome and are truly an inspiration to us all.
Scanna are proud to support Owen, Andy, Swifty and the Armed Forces Para-Snowsport Team. We would encourage others to do the same and visit www.afpst.co.uk for more information.
