Update on Connor Lynes – our 2016 Award Winner
Connor Lynes, who won one of our awards in 2016, is doing some amazing work raising awareness of his condition and still raising funds for charity. He recently took Easter eggs to the children in Leeds General Infirmary and Eckersley House. He also works with ‘Life For a Kid’, a charity with the aim of helping children under the age of 16 by offering funds and equipment to help them lead a better life. Connor has now left school and is studying sport at college and working hard to resit his GCSEs. He is still fighting his illness but next week, with the permission of his doctors, he will get back on the rugby pitch playing for Wakefield trinity PDRL team as a non contact player. This is a new concept of rugby for those who have disabilities. Connor is loving it and he is so proud to be able to have a go!
