Marine Andy Grant

The children had the privilege of meeting Royal Marine Andy Grant today. Pupils listened to his incredible story of bravery as he informed them about his time in 45 Commando. Whilst on tour in Afghanistan, Andy was blown up by an IED and suffered horrendous injuries, resulting in his leg having to be amputated. The children learnt about his ordeal and how he has rebuilt his life – even becoming the world’s fastest 10km single amputee runner! Andy showed the children how he changes his legs in order to play different sports and they even got to pass the prosthetics around. After competing in and winning two gold medals and  one bronze in the Invictus Games, his medals were passed around and worn by the children. A massive thank you to Andy for coming in and sharing your story – what an inspiration!
