We have just heard from Pearson Brothers that the order for our daughter's Electric Wheelchair is going through. This is such wonderful news because we’ve been battling for so long for so much. It’s such a huge help. What a wonderful charity that’s helped my disabled daughter. What a lovely start to the day for us. A million thanks. The Puma Pro 40 will really change her life. We will send some photos of her when we go to the Isle of Wight in September so you can see her out and about on holiday.
