Story

 

Rio Woolf, from Bushey Heath, was born without a tibia (shinbone), knee or ankle joint in his right leg and is forced to wear a prosthetic limb in order to get around.  As he is too young to have prosthetic joints fitted the four-year-old is unable to bend his right leg- making it difficult for him to sit down comfortably.

In order to fix the problem charity DEMAND have created two tailored leg supports for Rio to use at school. But Rio needs one for at home too. Each support costs £500 each and the supports allow Rio to sit comfortably while reducing the risk of further injury.

Please help DEMAND make another leg support for Rio! so that he can sit comfortably at home and do his homework.
