In April, Eva Loeffler visited Horatio’s Garden. Eva’s father, Ludwig Guttmann, established the first specialist centre for treating spinal injuries – Stoke Mandeville – in 1943. She commented:

“My father Ludwig Guttmann used sport as a way of rehabilitating people with spinal cord injuries and helping them return to a normal life in society. Horatio’s Garden is a project in the same way showing people confined to wheelchairs that so much is possible . It is also an inspiring place of beauty and activity and is a wonderful memorial to a fine young man.”
