    Story

    Hi my name is Marion. I am hoping to raise funds for a new Permobil wheelchair (the one in the cover photo) here's a wee bit about me.

    I was born in 1984 and diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy Athetoid. Unfortunately I have never had the full use of my legs due to this but this did not get in my way of living life to the full. For the best part of my life I received wheelchairs from the NHS. These were not the best for me as I was always uncomfortable and after numerous visits these issue were still not resolved. I like to spend a lot of time with my family, we enjoy long walks. Some walks have to be cut short because the wheelchair could not cope with the rocky paths or small hills.

    In 2013 I was very thankful to receive a Permobil wheelchair from a friend of a friend who was throwing it out. I am really impressed at how comfortable this chair has been and has made a massive difference to my independence. This chair can be moved all in all different positions making hospital and dental appointments at ease. When I go out I can raise my chair allowing me to see things I couldn't see before. Then when returning home I can recline it fully and lets me relax.

    I am a very active and take part in my local wheelchair dancing team, we have even taken part in competitions and came home with many medals. With this chair it makes my turning look effortless! I have been on a few activity holidays which is in a forest and very hilly, I've not had any issue with the chair as its very off road friendly.

    Sadly this chair is very old and some parts are starting to break. I have had these repaired but have been told that the parts are now discontinued due to the age of it.

    I have found a new version of this chair from Permobil and have had a trial of it. This is very similar and even better than I thought. I am hoping to raise the funds to purchase this chair I would be ever so grateful.

    Thanks
    Marion
