The charity, called Steel Bones, held its annual event at RAF Mildenhall where over 150 amputees and their families took part in a range of sporting activities.

The day also offered an opportunity to network, pick up information and listen to a number of inspirational talks by paralympic athletes including archer Mark Pattenden and basketball player Wendy Smith.

The event was hosted by the British American Committee at the base and supported by local businesses including Bury St Edmunds companies Limelight Design & Print and ComputerScene, as well as Newmarket Rotary Club.

Steel Bones works to bring together the amputee community to offer the latest news on stump health, promote healthy and active lifestyles, signpost useful services and provide flexible careers opportunities.
