Mike Lewis Ex Military - Raises funds playing football using his bespoke sports leg made at LPC

13, January 2017

Our amazing patient Mike Lewis played goalie in a WW1 Christmas truce football match last year to raise funds for The Royal British Legion succeeded in raising funds, breaking his NHS leg and using his bespoke prosthetic leg made by Abdo Haidar to continue playing the match!

We are so proud to share Michael Lewis story as an inspirational man who doesn’t give up!

Mike states “I don’t play or support football but thought that this could be something else to show that you can still live an active life with an amputation”

Michael set up a fund raising day of football between 2 teams to help raise funds for The Royal British Legion and had a very interesting and challenging day to say the least.

During the game Michael managed to break his NHS leg diving for the ball and persuaded the ref to run to his van to get his leg that was custom made by Abdo Haidar to continue playing the match.


As a diligent supporter for The Royal British Legion because of his background, Michael also successfully raised £1,244.79 which will help The Royal British Legion support their wounded, injured, sick members of the Armed Forces and their families.

Thankfully his NHS leg is now being repaired, but a huge congratulations to Michael for his achievements!
