    Story

    Summer needs a wheelchair to get around, and has fantastic wheels for home and school. Summer was born with multiple complex medical conditions, one of which is Athrogryposis, she has multiple upper and lower body joint contractures,this means her joints are either in a fixed or permanant bent position, she will need a wheelchair into adulthood. She lives in Shetland, a wild and beautiful place, but with limited accessible paths. However, as with any curious 5 year old, she would love to enjoy the outdoors more. Recently her family were able to borrow an 'off-road' chair and could enjoy a day at the beach. She could watch her brother and sister enjoy the water and be out in the fresh air with her family. Being able to access Shetlands natural landscape would greatly improve Summer's quality of life. Please help fund some new wheels for this amazing little lady. 🥰 I am her Auntie, and have been amazed at how Summer has battled through multiple operations and procedures, she is one tough little cookie!

      Quick update! I have now had a quote for the chair and we have added on a headrest and footplate for Summer. The extra money we raised over the basic cost of the chair will cover this additional cost. I'll keep you posted on any progress! Just to pick a colour now... Angie x

      We did it! Thank you all so much...lost for words. This is going to make the world of difference to family life for Brian, Marie, Zak, Ness and Summer. Marie this morning messaged "even the other night,we were out with friends and the dogs,and we had to stand at the path and couldn’t go watch the dogs running about in the field, simple things". Summer will now be able to go out and enjoy the simple things. 🥰 Well done you lot, you donated, shared and talked about Summer and this is the result. Thank you. x

      I am sat here in tears amazed and overwhelmed at the wonderful generosity you have all shown. I have seen from birth how Summer has battled through the many obstacles that have been in her path. She is truly amazing. Marie, Brian, Ness and Zak provide the most dedicated care for Summer, and this chair will allow them all the freedom to 'just go out'. At the moment anything other than tarmac is inaccessible and this chair will make a huge odds. Thank you all, and keep sharing! We are almost there. Love to you all. Angie. X
