Sydney Mae at 11 has quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy, Epilepsy and Dystonia. She is a full-time wheelchair user and is fully dependent on her parents and carers for all her care needs including lifting, hoisting, feeding and all intimate care tasks, such as showering.
She previously had an all-terrain buggy, but it is no longer suitable for her, as she is quite tall, and is now too big for this.
The new buggy will help with numerous activities that her wheelchair is not suitable for such as accessing the countryside, joining her parents when they go running, walking her dog and many more activities.
The Budding Foundation are pleased to have provided a grant of £2842 jointly with Burgess Hill Lions to place an order for the new buggy on the 23rd March 2020.
We are pleased to have contributed towards Harley’s new specialist wheelchair. Harley who suffers from cerebral palsy was delighted when the wheelchair arrived the day before his 13th birthday.
Harley's mum approached the charity after visiting our museum & learning about the work we do.
The specially adapted wheelchair cost £4700, the NHS could only contribute half of this, our charity was pleased to provide the balance of of £2300.
Harley's mum said it was the best birthday present they could have ever wished for.
