Read stories of people weʼve helped

When Eve O’Malley fractured her ankle, it looked like she’d be stuck at home – until we provided a wheelchair.

When Osian Nash broke his leg, the most upsetting thing was the prospect of missing his favourite rugby team’s big game.

Diana Spooner was facing ten weeks stuck in a chair following an operation, but our wheelchair soon had her racing around again.

Win and her fiancé were looking forward to tying the knot when she broke her ankle – but thanks to us she still made her big day.

After her leg was amputated, Lorna Williams was desperate to return home – but didn’t realise how difficult it would be coping alone.

Difficulties with walking meant that Colin was missing out on his beloved air shows – but our loan of a wheelchair soon had him soaring again.
