The Junior Games help young amputees to learn new skills and more importantly help them to discover their potential through sport. The emphasis of the Games is on having fun while encouraging the children to have a go at new sports and socialise with their peers.

Zahra Nanji, a solicitor specialising in amputation injuries in the personal injury team at Leigh Day said:

“We were delighted to again have had the opportunity to support the games and hope that these young people not only had a wonderful day meeting each other and making friends, but that they also discovered sports and activities which they loved and which they will go on to make part of their day to day lives. This was an inspiring and fun filled day where we could see the children’s confidence grow as they took part in sport"
