The Turbo Trust

We help people with disabilities to buy the best powerchairs available.

Charity Registration No. 1116374


Well, the challenge was done, and I beat my target. Even better though, over at Digital Louis' Justgiving page they beat their target, so any overspill will be donated to Daniel Morgan - see below.

"We've done it!!!!!!!  We have enough to buy a powerchair AND a docking system to clamp the snapdragon into our car.  Thank you all so much!

Any money donated here from 20/12/2010 will go towards four year old Daniel Morgan who, like Louis, needs a Snapdragon to get around.  He will be starting school soon and a Snapdragon will mean he can go to a mainstream primary and cause as much mischief as the other kids!!"



On December the 13th I'll be braving the niches and furthest reaches of the London Underground network, battling *things* that lurk between the gap and avoiding the mutant tube mice, all in an effort to raise money for Digital Louis' new powerchair.

The challenge is to travel the entire network in one day, but with the added difficulty of bagging every interchange, taking a photograph of the outside of the station (to document the change, and increasing my likelihood of being arrested under the Terrorism Act - danger bonus!).

I'm asking you good people to sponsor me a set amount for each interchange station bagged. There are a possible 62 stations - that's a lot of running up and down escalators. A suggested donation is 15p per interchange, making a total donation of £9.30 IF and only if I get them all!

Oooh it's like Pokemon for geeks.

Hang on, Pokemon is for geeks. OK, it's like Pokemon with a Travelcard.

Visit http://misplacedmarbles.blogspot.com/2010/12/help-louis-get-some-wheels.html for more information, and once I've done it, proof of the journey.

Louis has been accepted as a beneficiary of The Turbo Trust.  The donations given on this page can go towards Louis' Snapdragon chair (and it'll be assumed that you would prefer them to).  However, if we raise too much money or if we get a magical cure for Louis and he no longer needs a powerchair then the Turbo Trust will ensure that any excess money raised will go towards helping other kids like Louis who also need a  Snapdragon powerchair.  


If you are a UK taxpayer the Turbo Trust can receive gift aid on your donation (28% - yaay!!) and in addition, some or all of the Gift Aid raised may also go towards Louis’ powerchair.  If you only want your donation to go towards Louis, then you can still donate on this page but the donation will not be eligible for Gift Aid.  If this is your choice please let us know.


Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to Turbo Trust and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation.
