    Story

    I was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease 4 years ago aged 48 and have declined quite rapidly but I'm still fighting tooth and nail for my independence and to be able to contunue to travel. Having a lightweight portable wheelchair would help me enormously to get out and about - shopping, taking Mutley, the dog, for walks, and meeting friends for coffee (or something stronger!). I'm also planning to travel to Japan next September and a wheelchair will help me to more fully experience what that country has to offer

      Well with 4 days to go I'm 95% there thanks to the generosity of friends, family, neighbours and the anonymous. So thanks to everyone - large or small your donations have been really appreciated. When I realised I was close I thought my flexible friend could bridge the gap I don't have to pay until January so I've bought it and the video shows my first tentative out with Muts.

      Well I've raised more than 10% the Facebook link on it's own. I'm going to be sending out a mailshot later this week which i hope will generate interest as there's still quite a way to go despite everyone's generosity for which I'm extremely grateful, I had the physio round today and she's going to see if she can arrange a test drive which is probably a good idea - when I found a mobility scooter I liked the look of I crashed it at full speed into wall on the test drive -I've hired a couple of wheelchairs since - they're easier to control.

      I just saw you notice I must have missed it first time round. Sorry to hear about your diagnosis. Rembering your hospitality when I got "grounded" by naxalite activity in India :) Best wishes Sheila
