Wiltshire Based Veteran Leads New Campaign to Highlight OA’s Work

Bryony Fuller, one of the first female officers to graduate from RAF College Cranwell, is leading a new campaign encouraging Service leavers and their dependants to contact the OA for assistance should they need advice or financial help.

The Wiltshire based former officer broke her neck, back and spinal cord after she fell down the stairs, an accident that left her paralysed on the floor for 30 hours. Bryony spent 12 weeks in the Intensive Care Unit followed by nine months recovering on a spinal injury ward. After a year, Bryony returned home with permanent mobility issues, and now needs to use a walking frame or wheelchair. She wanted to stay living in her home, but the stairs and its remote location in the countryside made this difficult.

In search of help, Bryony contacted the OA, having first heard of the charity through her mother, who was an RAF officer during the Second World War. The charity has helped provide Bryony with a stair lift, a new lightweight electric wheelchair and taxi rides to and from hospital, in order to help Bryony lead a normal life. She is now able to stay living in her home with this support and enjoys horse riding again.
