Team GB's Ross Austen is an Inspiration

24 - 03 - 2016

Kelly Group are proud to sponsor Ross Austen, a team GB Paralympian member. Ross has always been a really active person and was a keen footballer prior to joining the forces. Having served in the Army for twelve years, he was on Operations with a Commando Engineer Regiment in Afghanistan in 2008 when he was injured in an explosion. His leg and knee were shattered and since then he has undergone over 20 operations. Ross then had to make to very difficult decision, due to the severity of his injuries, to have his leg amputated above the knee.

In aid of Help for Heroes, the Kelly Group are sponsoring Ross for the next two years to help him reach and exceed his personal and proffesional goals with Team GB. More to come in the near future about how Ross is getting on with his journey.
