It was lovely to hear from Bader Grant recipient, Thomas, who has got in touch to tell us how he has put his grant to good use and is already making great strides on his Race Running Bike. Thomas clearly has the Bader spirit in spades and we are sure he’s going to go far in every way! Well done, Thomas.

We wanted to say a massive thank you to The Douglas Bader Foundation for the funding they have provided to our young son Thomas. Thomas has cerebral palsy and cannot walk very far independently. With funding from the Foundation, Thomas now has a wonderful Petra RaceRunning bike and has just broken 3 National age group records for Under 12’s in England with his new Racerunner. 
Thomas sends a message to everyone who supports this wonderful foundation:

Your support has made such a difference to my life. I would not be able to do what I do on the track without your kindness so I wanted again to say a big Thank you!

Thomas Talbot, Bader Grant Recipient

Here are a couple of photographs kindly sent in by his family of Thomas in action on his bike.
