Gemma makes a speech in the House of Lords.

Our Gemma travelled to Westminster last week to address guests at the House of Lords in an event to launch “Supporting Tomorrows Superstars”, a campaign which is raising money to buy a new wheelchair rugby chair for each wheelchair rugby club across the UK and Ireland.
The campaign is run by children’s rugby charity Wooden Spoon, and Gemma, spoke about the benefits of disability sport in general. She also outlined how wheelchair rugby in particular has helped her as it is geared towards athletes impaired in both upper and lower limbs.
Gemma described giving the speech at the House of Lords as nerve-wracking but ensured she made the most of the opportunity to promote disability sport to the audience which included sportsmen, dignitaries, charity funders and ex-Paralympians.
