Peter Steele from Larne pictured with members of his family at the William Keown Trust’s Personal Achievement Awards.
Peter, who is confined to a wheelchair following a car accident in 2011, received the RUC Cup from Trevor Taylor, Deputy President of the William Keown Trust. Peter has made a high contribution to community life as he has set up a charity which specialises in post hospital rehabilitation for all ages in order to help people get back into a social environment. He has also shown great courage and ingenuity by using a camera mounted to a drone – which he controls from a small computer screen on his wheelchair–to produce stunning air photography. Peter’s work has been commissioned by tourism, heritage and motor clubs. Around 40 people from across the province received awards at the event. INLT 27-651-CON
