Georgina receives her award at Ab Phab

Georgina was nominated by her peers at youth club because of her amazing upbeat attitude which was noticed by one member in particularly who said “taking part in sports hall some more and trying really [hard] with the sports.”

Georgina is a firm believer in making sure you give everything your best shot. Members have commented that she inspires them to play more sports in the gym and that an impairment/ disability is no reason to be isolated.

Georgina makes all new members feel at ease and is a great encouragement to others who feel overwhelmed and dishearten by their own disabilities.
