I have been a quadraplegic for over 20 years and unable to use my hands and legs and I am in a motorised wheelchair.
I had a cycling accident in 1989 and have been in a wheelchair since. I have always lived in the Sheffield area and was quite active before my accident. I had a love of walking and over
these years in my wheelchair, have tried to go on walks suitable for me and my sister.
Editor's note - Sadly Geoff passed away in 2017 but it was decided to keep the site published as a lasting tribute.
After working in the NHS for 32 years at both Sheffield's Royal Hospital and Trent Regional Health Authority I found myself as Jeff's full-time carer after his accident in 1989.
We have always shared many interests and getting "out-and-about" was high on the list and so combining our love of the outdoors with passing on our experience to others led to Jeff's "Wheelchair Walks" project, something we both took a great interest in.
Jeff is greatly missed by me and his many friends.
