Thanks to your support we’ve been able to provide 22-year old Clare, from Derby with a life-changing electric wheelchair. Clare, who has cerebral palsy, only had a manual wheelchair, which was inadequate to meet many of her day-to-day needs. This also meant she was reliant on her parents pushing her everywhere.
