Peter Millar“I count it a great honour to be an Ambassador for the My Sport, My Voice! project. Sport is my world and I am very excited to have the opportunity to share my story of how sport has changed my life and given me a focus and a purpose.
“I hope in sharing my story it will help others who have learning disability take up sport, which in turn will help them as much as sport has helped me. My sport is my passion. All I want to do is help others achieve and reach their potential.”
