Unfortunately, the Covid-19 pandemic has seen a significant increase in the number of limb amputations across the country - mainly as a result of higher levels of immune system damage.
We have also found it more difficult to attract donations due to a lack of suitable outdoor events and the inconvenience of multiple lockdowns.
As a result, we really urgently need new donations NOW, so we can continue to provide communication, inspiration and guidance to all amputees, help them cope with the trauma and assist them to adjust to living with an amputation.
Thank you. You have my undying gratitude. Ray Edwards, MBE, Chairman.
