Extra mobility, especially when it is motorised will bring many advantages, one of the first children helped by the Melanie
Braysher Trust, expressed this through her poem.
My scooter gives me the independence I need,
Yet I couldn't have had it without the charity,
Summers are much more fun with
Cos you can go about with your friends,
Outside and in the scooter
Over-joyed was I when I was told about it,
The scooter is better than a
wheelchair you don't tire yourself out getting about,
Every child deserves independence and mobility,
Really it has changed my life over the past 3 years
by CA aged 13 yrs
from children and their families
"Thank you for the loan of the buggy, it will make such a big difference
to her life and the family's"
"Thank you very much for the bicycle I'm really enjoying it"
"In short I am benefitting hugely from the use of my electric wheelchair and I want you to know that you have certainly
made my life a better one!"
"The pushchair has given us a new-found freedom"
"For the first
time ever we have been able to have a family holiday together this simply would have been impossible without the buggy."
"Thank you for my new wheels!"
"I am really pleased with my new wheelchair because it is the only thing
I can do on my own."
