Dave "Wavey" Leach Update

Dave "Wavey" Leach Update

Let me introduce David Leach, England and Wales lacrosse Player, Osteopath, husband, father and if you ever had the pleasure of meeting him, one of the most vibrant, energetic and lovers of life you'd ever meet!
On December 11th 2022, Davey started his day like any other Sunday, playing his well loved sport lacrosse with his team Thundercats (Part of the England Box Lacrosse Development League). During the game, Davey dived for the ball and unfortunately collided with an oncoming player and broke his neck at level C3/4.
Davey's life immediately changed overnight. As a cranial/spinal expert, Davey was fully aware of the severity of the injury and the life changing journey he and the family will now face.

Great news is that Dave seems to be making some good progress with his recovery. It's amazing to see so many people from some many different friends of Dave's coming together to help him and him family during this difficult time. If you've never met Dave then you can a feel for how well liked he is by the sheer number of people doing all they can to help him.
