Veteran Lee Aitchison | Shooting

Veteran Lee Aitchison (Kelty, Fife)

Sport: Shooting

Lee, a veteran army mechanic who has completed two tours to Afghanistan, was confined to a wheelchair by nerve damage triggered by a training accident.

He contracted his condition when a twisted ankle sustained on a military skills exercise developed into Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, a rare, progressive and incurable condition that caused extreme hypersensitivity.

Despite his condition, Lee still manages to enjoy sport, especially shooting, which he now competes in competitively. Help for Heroes are helping Lee with funding towards an air pistol, which we hope will help him achieve his dream of joining Team GB, competing in shooting events at a future Paralympic Games.
