In September a team from PPG and a few friends took part in the Ipswich Half Marathon raising an impressive £2,090 to go towards George’s new wheelchair.
George is a delightful, bright, happy 7 year-old-boy who attends his local primary school. He has Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 2, a muscle wasting condition for which at the moment there is no treatment or cure.
George has never been able to walk and has been dependent on a power wheelchair since he was in nursery.
The Paravan Piccolino Wheelchair offers all essential functions; good supporting seating, recline and tilt in space. It has many other specialist features including a seat riser, which allows the seat to rise up to bring the user up to adult eye level; this is especially useful in lessons and the playground for social development and independence.
We are pleased to announce that George has now received his new wheelchair. A massive thank you to all of those who took part and to everybody who sponsored
