Last week we were visited by Great Britain Paralympic footballer Alistair Patrick-Heselton.

Alistair suffered significant injuries in a car crash and following 3 months in a coma, and being told he may never walk again, he thought his footballing days were over. But four years later he was contacted by The FA and given details of CP football for Cerebral Palsy or brain injury sufferers.

Alistair rebuilt his life that culminated in him representing Great Britain at London 2012.

Alistair visited Vandyke as part of ‘Sky Sports’ Living For Sport project.  Alistair led workshops to students that aimed to inspire all to help them reach their full potential. 

Alistair told the story of his career and the many obstacles he had to overcome to reach his goals. In his workshops he used the 6 key skills he believes are imperative if you wish to be successful leaving a powerful message with students.
