Andrew takes first public steps in 21 years

Andrew Renton took his first public steps in 21 years at our Conference yesterday (September 2) after falling in Glen Coe while mountaineering in 1994, which left him with a severe brain injury.

“It’s always been my goal to walk,” Andrew tells the EADT, “and this is the furthest I have walked since my accident.  Hopefully I will be able to move without the frame in the future – that’s the ultimate goal.”
