Read stories of people weʼve helped

When Eve O’Malley fractured her ankle while playing in the park, it looked like she’d be stuck at home for weeks – until we provided a special wheelchair.

Living with Parkinson’s disease can be difficult for Renate Eglestaff – so she was especially grateful when our volunteer called round to help.
