Thank You to Those Who Supported Josh

I want to send a big shout out of THANK YOU to everyone who got behind Josh in the I Love My Physio competition. Thank you for your support & taking the time to cast your vote. The support Josh has received from the community is incredible. As a young man living with autism Josh faces daily challenges.
