In Dec 1997 on the way to work, 17 yr old Glen Keeble was knocked off his motorbike. He lost his right arm, broke both legs, a rib and his neck in two places (at the time only the 27th person in the world to survive this type of neck break). 3 wks later on his 18th birthday he was in the operating theatre. Recovering and unable to walk, he got in a wheelchair and went round the hospital cheering up the elderly and raising £105 for Comic Relief.
He left hospital and faced years of operations to regain his mobility. When physically able, he did a sponsored run from Sleaford to Ruskington to raise money for Telby Hospital Ward in Lincoln. He participated in many charity events including a London to Brighton bike ride in aid of Marie Curie who helped the family when Glen's dad died at 53 yrs old.
Unable to return to his job as an Electrical Engineer he retrained at college and his ex-employer re-employed him in an office capacity, he is now a highly regarded Lead Capital Investment Manager travelling 100's of miles each week.
At 31 Glen lost his youngest brother in fatal accident and was a pillar of strength to his widowed mother and older brother.
Glen is now 41, he is married to Sharon and they have 2 lovely children Sam (11) and Lauren (8). He is a active governer at Kirkby-La-Thorpe School where the children have been educated.
Despite an uphill struggle in life, Glen has never given in and overcomes daily problems with courage and determination. He is our hero!
