MEET OUR STAFF
Our team is ready to support Tetraplegics and their family and friends in all aspects of social life.
Ann is responsible for the Strategy and development of the charity and led the charity in setting up the Transforming Lives Campaign which was launched in November 2018. The aim of the campaign is to raise 1 million in the next three years to enable Regain to develop its work supporting tetraplegic men and women who have sustained an injury through a sporting accident. Ann was previously a Trustee of the Charity and has been a long standing supporter of its work for over 25 years. Ann has run the London Marathon for Regain and is taking part in Regains Cycle Kenya Challenge in November 2019. Ann is passionate about the work of Regain and the work it does and wants to help the Charity develop its fundraising programme, so that it can achieve its future goals - helping more tetraplegic men and women throughout the uk.

After finishing his industrial design degree at the University of Central England, Martin moved to London and worked as a computer aided design technician. Martin had his spinal injury and became tetraplegic in 2014. He was cycling to work and hit a car. Martin has since learned to drive, taken up wheelchair rugby and has also got married. The highlight of his life more recently has been the birth of his beautiful little girl, Zoe. Martin would love to hear from any tetraplegic who has a story to tell, so please contact him at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Spinal Unit Ambassador
Tim joined Regain as our Spinal Unit Ambassador Coordinator in July 2019. Tim has been a great supporter of Regain for a number of years and has taken part in several overseas challenge events in Cuba and Bali. In 1994, when Tim was 19 years old, he became tetraplegic in a swimming accident. Regain helped him get his life back on track by providing him with a handcycle. Always a sports enthusiast, he took to handcycling with zeal and has strongly supported Regain ever since. As Spinal Unit Ambassador Coordinator, Tim assists our team of voluntary ambassadors, who visit all the spinal units in the UK and inform them of our charity’s work. Tim’s team is vital in our mission to provide support to as many tetraplegics and their families as possible. Our voluntary ambassadors spread the word of all the support we can provide to tetraplegics after their accident. If you are tetraplegic and would like to become an Ambassador, Tim would be delighted to hear from you at email@example.com
