Founder – Grant Logan
On a sunny morning, September 2003 my life took dramatic change of direction, which would alter the way I lived for the rest of my life. I was working in the music business as a manager of artists and songwriters, working with them on all aspects of their careers. A busy life but I really enjoyed it.
The day my life changed… I had gone to Exeter with a couple of friends on a weekend motorbike trip and on the way back I had an accident I have no recollection of.

Olivia overcame serious health challenges and beat the bullies to become a record-breaking wheelchair racer.
Born prematurely at just 24 weeks and weighing 1lb 11oz, Olivia was the only one of triplets to survive.
Struggling to breathe and suffering a bleed to her brain, she spent nearly six months in a special baby care unit and needed oxygen at home for a year. When she was a year old, she was diagnosed with athetoid cerebral palsy in all four limbs, and registered severely sight impaired and profoundly deaf.

At nine months old, I was diagnosed with Glutaric aciduria type 1, an inherited disorder affecting my limbs and vocal cords. However, I put this behind me and strive to succeed in life.
