Will Pike



In 2008, Will Pike became a paraplegic as a result from the Mumbai Terror Attack. He then spent six months being rehabilitated before returning home to London and started his life, now as a disabled person.

Will harnessed the success of the film to talk about disability in the mainstream media, appearing on programmes such as Good Morning Britain and The Victoria Derbyshire Show.

In 2017, Will contributed to 'Back To The Taj Mahal Hotel', a feature length documentary that revisited the experience of surviving a Terror Attack in which nearly 170 people died. Will attended the premier at the International Documentary Festival in Amsterdam.

In 2018, Will joined the Spinal Injuries Association as a Peer Support Volunteer and regularly visits the hospital in Stanmore where he rehabilitate to speak with patients in the Spinal Injury Unit. He won Volunteer Of The Year at their annual awards event.

in May 2019, Will presented the BBC Radio1 Podcast, 'Spinal Injury: A Life Changing Crisis'.
