Colin Javens Spinal Injury Trust

Colin Javens, paralysed from shoulders down in an accident in 2000, used a tiny movement in one wrist to drive again and to launch “Driving Home”: an inspirational fund-raising journey, with him at the wheel, from Stoke Mandeville Hospital to Cape Town.

It also inspired him to form his registered charity, The Colin Javens Spinal Injury Trust – to raise funds for research into cures for spinal cord damage and for organisations involved in the rehabilitation and welfare of those paralysed by spinal injury. The Trust is also registered as a Charity in Jersey, due to the Patrons and Trustees’ connections there.
