    We had an absolutely brilliant afternoon of wheel chair basketball with Lee. He was fantastic with our SEN and SLD students who all accessed the activity successfully. Will definitely ask Lee to come
    back again as the students were buzzing after their session with him.

    Great speaker at the County Durham leadership event tonight Lee. Brilliant to listen to your story and see you photos. Inspiring for our leaders and their families.

    As part of our schools annual World Sports Week we arranged for Lee to come in and deliver some wheelchair basketball to our KS2 children. The programme delivered was a complete success for the
    pupils, who voted wheelchair basketball their favourite activity from the entire week. It was the first time our Lingfield pupils experience wheelchair basketball but we are already arranging to make
    sure it is not the last with efforts being made to continue working with Lee in the near future.

    It has been a delight to have Lee come into the school and work with a wide range of young people. He has the ability to capture and engage even the most challenging pupils. His ability to inspire
    and motivate students (especially those that do not participate in sport) led to regular participation in his Change 4 Life club. What an amazing person!

  • Simon Carey (Monday, May 27 13 03:56 pm BST)

    Lee spoke to 100 Y10 students as part of their focus day on motivation and inspiration. His story was extremely interesting and had the students fully engaged with his ParaOlympic tales and how he
    had to work so hard to overcome the challenges in his life when he lost mobility in his legs. His story was an inspiration to us all and we at Trinity would use Lee for future occasions.

    I just wanted to say a massive thank you Lee from everyone at Morrison & Foerster. We really enjoyed your presentation and found it be both inspiring and informative. Everyone thought your talk
    was so positive and enjoyable. Thank you so much for taking the time to drive all that way to come and see us. Our very best wishes.

  • Caroline Smith (Friday, October 19 12 03:20 pm BST)

    I invited Lee in to talk to a group of year 11 PSHE students. They were looking forward to meeting a 'real life paralympian' and were not disappointed. Lee was motivational, inspiring and created a
    definite sense of 'live for the moment and roll with the punches to do your best' in both students and staff.
    A great session and I will be asking Lee back to work with younger students at our school

  • Linda Owens (Kingston Park Primary School) (Saturday, September 15 12 01:30 am BST)

    Hi Lee,
    I just wanted to say thank you for a great afternoon on 12th July. The children and staff found your talk very inspirational and moving. The children were very interested in everything you had to say
    and they enjoyed having the opportunity to ask you their own questions. The children learnt a lot from the experience and it was certainly a very memorable afternoon.
    Many thanks,
    Linda Owens

  • Simon O'Farrell (Abbey Hill School) (Tuesday, July 17 12 11:16 am BST)

    Lee recently visited our school as on our Olympic day as part of the school 25th Birthday celebrations. He delivered assemblies for our pupils about his life and sporting career. These assemblies
    were both extremely inspirational and motivational. As he engaged the children brilliantly as he spoke about his sporting life from football to coaching and how he experienced the ultimate challenge
    and honour for any athlete by representing his country in two sports at the Paralympic Games. Lee then visited pupils around school and answered questions. His manner and sense of humour was
    excellent as he spoke and entertained the pupils.
    Lee then delivered afternoon sessions in wheelchair basketball to a group of our pupils. This coaching session was exceptionally good as he shared his knowledge with the pupils. We ended the day with
    an awards ceremony and Lee gave a final speech after handing out the winning athletes their medals.
    Lee is excellent speaker and knows how to engage his audience and is defiantly a top class coach. He comes highly recommended by all staff and pupils at Abbey Hill School in Stockton.

  • Mel Adam (Wednesday, July 11 12 06:23 pm BST)

    Lee recently visited our school at Coulby Newham. A fun-filled, fantastic day was had by all. Both the children and staff thoroughly enjoyed participating in the wheelchair basketball (some staff had
    to be forcibly removed!)and the presentation was enlightening and inspiring. I cannot recommend Lee highly enough! Huge thanks and please come back soon.

  • Jo Harwood (Monday, July 02 12 04:14 pm BST)

    Thank you Lee for visiting us at Gibside School
    Your talk was inspirational to staff and children. We loved asking you questions and seeing your medals. We have written about you on our GET SET blog and are delighted with how you have brought the
    Paralympic values to life for us.

  • Mrs Harrison-Brown (Wednesday, June 27 12 01:09 pm BST)

    Thank you for your visit to Trimdon Junior School. All the children enjoyed having you in school and having a go in your wheelchair.

  • emma shearer (Wednesday, June 13 12 04:24 pm BST)

    Lee came to our call centre at EDF Energy in Sunderland we set up a small area in reception where people had a go of the wheelchairs & basket balls & got a few pointers from Lee - it was
    really difficult but great fun. Lee also chatted to many employees & some kids from a local school who came to visit, everyone had a great time & we all learned something new. We also raised
    over £1000 for Paralympics GB. Thanks again for yur visit

  • Andy Wilson (Monday, May 28 12 09:38 pm BST)

    Lee came into Prince Bishop School to kick-off the P.E. departments paralympic week. He did a superb whole school assembly and you could have heard a pin drop! Both staff and pupils were raving about
    how exceptional he was as a motivational speaker.
    He then followed this up with two consecutive afternoons of wheelchair basketball coaching. The kids loved it so much, they want me to buy some sports wheelchairs to get it onto the P.E curriculum.
    Thanks very much for coming and working with our school Lee! We hope to work with you again in the near future. All the best!!

  • Jan Anderson (Prince Bishop School) (Wednesday, May 23 12 01:28 pm BST)

  • Carlton & Faceby School (Saturday, March 24 12 03:28 am GMT)

    Lee came to talk to his about his Paralympic experiences, his life in a wheel chair following his accident and to help us understand the game of wheelchair basketball, the latter we had watched on a
    video before hand. Lee's visit was a great experience for the children and very inspiring for the teachers.

    I have know Lee for a number of years now both as a fellow team mate on the Eagles Wheelchair Basketball team and also through my role as manager at Percy Hedley Sports Academy where Lee
    coaches.
    What 'Titch' lacks in size he more than makes up for with his enthusiasm and personality!
    A great coach, a great inspiration and a great friend! A truly remarkable coach and person.

  • Matt Peverell (Wednesday, February 29 12 08:00 pm GMT)
