Local girl, Isabella, has been gifted a new wheelchair to replace her pushchair that was also funded by the Trust five years ago.
Back in 2016, the Axentis Michael Charitable Trust helped fund the purchase of a Stingray pushchair for Isabella, a young girl from Weston-super-Mare who, due to complications at birth, suffers with quadriplegic cerebral palsy.
At the time, Isabella unfortunately did not meet the criteria for NHS funding, so the Trust stepped in and donated £1,500 towards the cost of the specially designed pushchair, which allowed Isabella to get around with greater comfort and ease.
Now, five years on, Isabella is a bright and fun-loving little girl and thanks to a further donation from the Axentis Michael Charitable Trust, her pushchair has been upgraded and she’s now the proud owner of a wheelchair that allows her to continue to explore the world with the help of her family.
Isabella’s Mum, Emma commented: “Isabella’s wheelchair is absolutely fantastic. She’s well supported and it’s so easy to push. It glides across muddy fields and the beach! I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Alex and the trustees for supporting our family again. It’s a great piece of kit that will enable Isabella to continue to have lots of fun and make many memories for years to come.”
