Story

Meet Stephen. He is 61 years old and has been in a wheelchair since he was 47 after being hit over the head in a mugging. The problem is none of the chairs have supported him correctly and he is so uncomfortable. He was provided this chair but it is now broken and being held together with string!

He is in this chair for 13 hours a day and is uncomfortable and unable to sit up and drink his coffee etc. because the arm is broken causing him to lean to one side. We want to get Stephen a chair that will support his head and body correctly. Everyone deserves to be comfortable and as independent as possible. Stephen used to be an Electronics Engineer and we know, if he were still able, he would be designing new chairs for others.

Please help with whatever you can. Every £1 counts. Stephen has saved £500 of his own money towards it but it would take him another 15 years to save the rest himself.

Thank you for reading his story and for donating.
