Brandon represents the North East region on the Kidz Board, and has been involved with Whizz-Kidz for over ten years. As well as receiving wheelchairs and attending clubs, he has also completed the Whizz-Kidz Young Leaders programme, and says that the charity has helped him develop new skills and become more independent.

 

Brandon’s primary passion is sport and in 2012 he won a Pride of Wearside Award for sporting achievement. He is a Tall Ships ambassador and in 2016 he sailed round Spain in a specially adapted boat. He is keen to challenge people’s perceptions of what young wheelchair users can do, and he has ambitions of becoming a personal trainer.
