Daniel's Wheelchair Appeal
I am writing to say a big thank you to everyone who has supported Daniels wheelchair appeal. As you can see from the new pictures, Daniel now has his new wheelchair. I can not explain just how amazing and life changing this is for him. Due to the lightweight chair he can now move himself independently, without needing anyone to push him. This has given him so much more independence. He can move himself towards things he would like to do, turn around, move backwards and go to areas he wants to go, given him the opportunity to make his own choices. He can also now move independently from one room to another in his home, which is fantastic! As Daniel is unable to speak, this is so important for him for being able to show others what he wants.
He is also able to use the chair without causing injury to himself. His previous NHS chair was not suitable as he used to drag his feet on the floor and his arms across the wheels causing nasty friction burns. He also used to bang his head on the bars when distressed. Due to the special seating in his new wheelchair he can no longer hurt himself and seems so much more happier and calmer when using the new chair.
We are so grateful and thankful to everyone who helped us achieve this for Daniel. From the bottom of our hearts.. thank you so much!
Daniel has very complex needs. Unfortunately the wheelchair he has from the NHS isn't adapted to meet his needs, which is stopping him from being able to get around independently.
We have found the perfect wheelchair for Daniel which he has tried (see photo). He can use this chair without help and safley, developing his own independence, confidence and mobility.
However, it costs £3,208 for this chair he desperately needs. Please help us to raise these funds so Daniel can develop his own independence and mobility.
Thank you so much.
