Story

The Turbo Trust receives applications from seriously disabled people from the youngest toddlers through all ages. To place an order for a specialist customised powerchair that really meets their needs, many need to raise £25,000. We work with other charities to help families achieve this kind of goal. The Turbo Trust wants to give them as much help as we can and passes on over 90% of donations in grant aid.


One little boy’s Mum wrote:
Our son is almost two years old. He is bright, inquisitive and extremely sociable. He is the family joker. He has SMA type 1. As a result he has never been able to move himself around on his own; he has never crawled or walked. This means that powered mobility is essential to him. A good powerchair will allow him to fulfil his fantastic potential, to chase his brother, to play with his friends and to explore the world around him.

We hope that he will start a mainstream nursery next year and we want him to be as independent as possible.

We also have a three year old son and so we know how much interaction takes place at floor level during early years; play, reading time at nursery, having a picnic on the grass  at the park, sitting on the floor watching cartoons with friends. So we feel that having a chair that lowers to the floor will be hugely important.

Please note: HMRC rules do not allow tax refund under gift aid if the donor insists it should benefit a named individual so please bear this in mind when making your donation. Gift-aided Donations made via this page to the Turbo Trust will go into a fund at the discretion of the trustees.
It is the trustees' aim to provide enough money for each beneficiary to order the equipment they need. And the trustees do take note of in whose name funds have been raised when they make grant decisions. The more gift-aided donations received here the more funds the trustees have to help each applicant.
