My New 4x4 Wheelchair - The Beast

We have been fundraising over the past few months for an off-roading wheelchair to allow me to walk Molly more easily and to allow me to go off the path as well as opening up more walks to us as my chair can cope with the ground. We needed to raise £8,200 for the chair and we did it, and we ordered the chair. Well, the chair came yesterday and I used it for the first time today. I will add videos too as when they finish uploading. We now need a new wheelchair accessible vehicle to be able to take the new wheelchair out safely. Go to the Wheelchair and Car Fund page to read more about the car. 

None of this would have been possible without your support. I am so grateful to everyone who has donated and shared my page because this wheelchair is going to improve my quality of life greatly; going out today has proved that. I need to get used to driving it as it's totally different to my other wheelchair but I enjoyed it so much. I just cannot believe the kindness of family, friends and friends of friends. You have made this girl very happy.
