Popsey and John Hopkison were meant for each other. After both losing a limb and going through difficult times, their meeting changed their lives forever.

John Hopkinson , 43, and Popsey both suffered both physical and psychological injuries.

The first lost his leg in 2016 following a serious fall on a construction site. Difficult for him to smile and lead a normal existence since this tragic event.
