Help for Heroes host Phoenix Winter Games

Help for Heroes held their annual mini winter Paralympics, a week of sporting challenges from wheelchair rugby to dog sled racing united wounded, injured and sick veterans and Serving personnel from around the country.

The annual winter games welcomed competitors from each of the charity’s four recovery centres as well as a team representing the pride of Wales.

Dog sled racing was the opening event, and proved to be one of the highlights thanks to the 25 furry Alaskan Malamute dogs which pulled opponents along a track.

Other sports included new age curling, archery, stand-up paddle boarding and a trip to Silksworth Ski Slope in Sunderland to do snow-tubing. All the challenges were designed so that every participant could compete on an equal basis, regardless of injury or ability.
