Inspiring and supporting young people seriously injured through sport

Joseph Green to Climb Snowdon

Snowdon Climb by Joseph Green and his family for the Matt Hampson Foundation to help raise funds for Seb Goold

I was travelling with Seb and the rest of the rugby team back from a tournament in Norfolk last Easter when a tragic accident happened resulting in Seb falling from our coach at full speed. He suffered terrible injuries which meant his right leg had to be removed at the thigh in order to save his life. After nearly 6 months and 30 operations in Addenbrookes, followed by 3 months at an intensive rehabilitation centre for children in Surrey, Seb finally returned home just before Christmas. He is now back at home with his twin brother and has returned to school.

Before the accident Seb was an outstanding sportsman. Always wanting to be the best at everything he did. He has now had to change his sports ambitions, but is determined to excel in the future at paralympic sports.

The Seb Goold Trust’s initial aims are to provide Seb with specialist equipment, sporting advice and coaching over and above what he might expect through standard treatment to aid him in achieving his new sporting goals. Additionally there are other charities and funds that have helped Seb along the way that the trust would like to contribute to in the future.

I will be climbing up with my parents, my dog Max and Amelia my sister is joining us at the top for the descent.
