Stephen is a director of the community interest company along with former Queen's Lancashire Regiment soldier and triple amputee Andy Reid and the third director, Jackie Palmer.

The non-profit organisation, which launched last month, creates opportunities for amputees and provides assistance towards further education, employment, sports and hobbies.

They are hosting many awareness and fund raising days and hope to set up a centre on Merseyside were amputees and carers can go and share experiences or just use the facilities.

The trio plan to eventually create more centres across the UK.
