'The Fire Fighters Charity recently invited Sascha Kindred and his partner Nyree Lewis to the opening of its recuperation Centre in Littlehampton, West Sussex. We were honored when Sascha and Nyree kindly agreed to open the centre's new swimming pool.

It was their attendance on the day that really made the event a success. Mingling with guests and Charity beneficiaries alike, both Sascha and Nyree brought along their medals, and took time out to chat to all those visiting the centre, making the day memorable for all. We can not thank them enough for their support.'

'We booked Sascha Kindred as a guest speaker for the Hopwood Hall College FE Awards Ceremony that took place at Rochdale Town Hall on 27th November 2008. Guests were thrilled by Sascha’s speech, which was both interesting and entertaining. Tales about his time as a college student and his experiences in Bejing were funny and inspiring.

We felt that Sascha added sparkle to the event and made the night extra special for our young people. He has a warm and delightful personality which shone through as he happily posed for photographs after the ceremony. We were honoured to have Sascha and also his lovely fiancée Nyree Lewis with us on the evening. Hopwood Hall College is very proud indeed to have Sascha Kindred amongst its alumni.'

'Sascha attended our Adult Awards evening to present certificates and speak about his experiences. The evening was a huge success and this was due to his very professional yet informal approach. Sascha's speech was very inspiring, he included just the right amount of material to keep the audience completely engaged – the content was inspirational, motivational and his sense of humour appealed to everyone. We are already considering inviting him again to attend one of our Prize Giving events.'

'Sascha and his partner Nyree Lewis attended the Sussex Parallel Youth Games 2009 as sporting champions to help inspire and motivate all the participants to continue to play and compete in sport.

Sascha gave a fantastic speech at the Opening Ceremony to over 400 people capturing everyone's attention with both humorous and moving stories of his experiences in sport as an elite athlete and revealing the awe inspiring Beijng Paralympic Gold Medal!

Sascha and Nyree interacted brilliantly with both the students and the VIPs and were happy to help present and award (hundreds!) of medals and trophies. After the event students were queuing for autographs and to see the amazing paralympic medal! We hope to invite Sascha and Nyree to many of our future events and would like to thank them both for adding such a special element to our 2009 Games.'

'It was an honour to have an athlete with such a high caliber as Sascha to support our event. Sascha was great to work with and all our athletes, parents and organisers alike were mesmorised by his experiences and inspired by his dedication and commitment to succeed, we would certainly have no problem requesting his services again'.
