Well, that's up to you, it might be your memories of being a patient of Sir Ludwig Guttmann's, or working with him at the Spinal Unit.  Perhaps you remember early Stoke Mandeville Games, or even the Paralympics at Stoke Mandeville in 1984. 

You might be a school that has used our educational resources: we'd love to see what you've produced and share it with other schools to inspire them.

My aunt and Uncle, Gwen and John Buck were patients of 'Poppa' Guutman. They led very full lives, winning medals at the paraplegic games. As a youngster they would take me to Stoke Mandeville for weekends. Seeing all those people playing sports at really high levels was no surprise, nor even strange to me, because my aunt and uncle naturally made me think that anything was possible even for those in wheelchairs. They were just amazing.
