Conclusion

I have a powered wheelchair. This is really great. As I cannot self propel a manual wheelchair, my powered wheelchair allows me to go where I want to go. This means that at school, I can get around by myself, which is really important to me because I don’t like having others push me around where they want to go. These wheelchairs are really expensive. As I can walk a short distance with my walking frame, the NHS would not fund me. I am very grateful to Whizz-Kidz that they have bought this chair for me. I know that I am one of the lucky ones because there are lots of other children who need a chair like mine and will have to wait a long time. If You would like to help more children like Jack Then PLEASE give your £2000 to…. Thank you For listening!!! ...read more.
