Vote For Dean #CharityTuesday

Posted on 10th January 2012 in #charitytuesday/ Dean Symmons/ paralympics/ Stoke Mandeville/ torch bearers

Today my #CharityTuesday post is an appeal for votes not money. Please vote, it will only take a few seconds of your time.

Dean Symmons, who is paralysed from the waist down needs your vote so that he can carry the Paralympic torch to start the games this summer.

Dean, aged 16, was paralysed in a freak accident while playing softball at school in June 2010. As he swung to hit the ball he slipped a disc which then scraped his spinal cord causing a clot which prevented bloodflow to his legs. After 4 months in a rehabilitation ward at Stoke Mandeville and is now back at school, in St Neots, in a wheelchair.
