My hero – Geoff Adams-Spink

This is an item about a hero of mine, Geoff Adams-Spink. Geoff is a BBC correspondent whom I met when we were both training to be journalists on a Post-Grad course in Falmouth. He has worked extensively across the BBC and has never let his disability prevent him from achieving his goals.

Of course, he’d never have got as far as he has if he wasn’t jolly clever, a world-class wit and superlative speaker as well but he is also an example to my boys that whatever difficulties you may have, they are surmountable with a shed load of grit and determination.

My boys have different disabilities to Geoff, but it is my hope that they will never let their own challenges stop them following their dreams.
