Andy Reid

Corporal Andy Reid lost both his legs and his right arm after stepping on an IED plate whilst serving with the 3rd Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment in Afghanistan in 2009.

He astounded people with his recovery, spending only 2 weeks in hospital before returning home.

A testament to his attitude in overcoming such adversity, he doesn’t let the severity of his injuries stop him from going forward with a positive mind set.

Andy has been skydiving and took part in a 10K Run. He won The Sun’s Millitary Award for Overcoming Adversity in 2010.

Andy has recently finished his autobiography ‘Standing Tall’.

He is an Ambassador for the ABF Soldier Charity, as well as a motivational speaker, working with some of the UK’s leading companies.

Andy is an accomplished speaker, having spoken at numerous corporate engagements. His incredible story is one that has a lasting effect on all who hear him speak. His testimonials are evidence of this.

2017 sees Andy challenging himself as he participates in Warrior Challenge covering 400 miles of Cycling, 125 miles of Kayaking and a 17,500 feet total ascent over 14 days, honouring the memory of 6 men who lost their lives in 2012 while serving in the Kandahar province, Afghanistan.
