I won my appeal

Postby daisies » Mon Feb 03, 2014 7:49 pm


Today I had to attend my tribunal appeal. This was held before a judge and a doctor. They made me feel very at ease, our meeting started 15 minutes early as all parties were ready. Their main issue was with my mobility kept asking about the 50 metre distance. The meeting lasted about 20 minutes when I was told they had made their decision to grant my appeal. I cannot explain the relief I felt. I encourage people to appeal and not be put off by others.

Well done, all went well in the end, but I bet you had to wait a long long long time for that.
