A charity volunteer from Aston Clinton was in for a surprise last week when he turned up to Stoke Mandeville Stadium for his regular volunteering placement.
Daniel Storr, aged 37, was unaware that the week marked the 10-year anniversary of his service to WheelPower, which provides sports opportunities for disabled people.
Daniel, who used to play wheelchair basketball, said: “As a full-time wheelchair user who once used to walk with the aid of elbow crutches, I’m motivated by a desire to help others who have found themselves in a similar position to myself and try to make their lives as fulfilling as possible through sport and to help them to feel they have a greater independence.I hope to continue helping WheelPower for years to come.”
Since starting in 2005, Daniel has supported WheelPower’s fundraising team in the office and worked on events such as the Mix96 Tour de Vale bike ride.
WheelPower’s head of fundraising, Paul Rushton, said: “To volunteer week in week out for 10 years shows remarkable commitment and Daniel’s work has helped WheelPower raise thousands for the benefit of disabled people.
“Thank you, Daniel, for all your hard work. Here’s to the next 10 years.”
