This time last year Gavin McLaughlin was fit and healthy enjoyed swimming and running and had competed in the World Age-Group Triathlon Championships. But over the course of one weekend in October a stroke slowly took over his body, leaving him unable to move. Mr McLaughlin, who lives in Hampstead Norreys with his wife and two sons, had suffered a brain stem stroke and he spent four days at the RBH before being transferred to West Berkshire Community Hospital. What is very noticeable is the inspirational story of overcoming and achieving what Gavin wanted to do despite the difficulties.
Gavin wanted to return to Triathlon’s and we hear his journey to competing again and the cause he is raising money for The Neuro Physics department at The West Berkshire Community Hospital via the West Berkshire Community Hospital League of Friends. Our support goes to West Berkshire Community Hospital League of Friends.
