The families of the 96 football supporters killed at Hillsborough already had to cope with the loss of their sons and daughters.  But their grief was compounded in the most painful way imaginable as members of the establishment closed ranks in a bid to smear the victims in a shameful cover-up.

 

When her best friend died at the age of just 36, caring Betty McGlinchey didn't hesitate to take in her two young daughters and raise them as her own.  It was the start of a remarkable life as a foster mother to more than 1,200 often troubled children and young people.

 

When Jonny Benjamin sat on the edge of Waterloo Bridge, about to jump into the icy Thames to end his life, hundreds of Londoners walked past.

 

The death of his beautiful son from meningitis is never far from Steve Dayman’s mind.

 

His indomitable spirit and infectious enthusiasm as he refused to let terminal illness stop him living life to the full made Stephen Sutton a national hero.

 

Nothing shows the strength of the human spirit quite like the incredible performances of our heroic athletes at the Invictus Games.
