Story

I'd like to replace my ten year old Permobil Trax all terrain power chair with a new one as the old one has broken down and spare parts are now obsolete. Without one, I can't whizz over the meadow, through the woods, across fields, down the river towpath or take the dogs and ponies for long walks around the Wytham countryside with FarmAbility on Mondays. I'm hoping we'll get another dog, and I'd like to go with the dog for walks too.
A brand new Trax would be far too expensive, but Permobil have offered me an ex-demo model, in excellent condition, for less than half the price.
£6000 would also cover some customisation that I need as well as new batteries.
Please would you help me?
By the way, the NHS only provide an indoor power chair for me, which doesn't go on rough terrain, so I have to rely on your generosity for this extra freedom to get out and experience the world. It would make such a difference to me.

    just to let you all know, we have been promised another £1,000, possibly more, so the figure shown here is lower than it should be. Hoping, through all this generosity, to have the new vehicle by Christmas!!
