Ethan Enjoying Time On His Trike

We recived some fantastic feedback from a family that we assisted recently.Rather than a holiday they asked the Foundation if we could provide a Special trike that Ethan would be able to use daily.The trike had to fold down to the specifications of a wheelchair and fit into the family car.

The family had done most of the groundwork in sourcing a company that specialised in this type of bike so all we needed to do was fund the cost.With all the help from our fantastic fundraisers we managed to fullfill Ethan’s wishes.

The Trike not only gives Ethan a sense of freedom but also assists in his rehab.

The family said ” Thanks to Foundation for providing them with a holiday they will remember for my years”
