A national children’s charity is urgently calling on the parents of disabled children in Lincolnshire to come forward after a generous donation of life changing equipment.

National children’s charity Caudwell Children, who provide practical and emotional support to disabled children and their families, has received funding from the J W Wright Trust, to supply one life enhancing therapy tricycles to a disabled child in the county.

The national charity is now appealing for families to come forward and apply for the equipment.

The tricycle – costing between £800 and £1,500 – will be individually designed to meet the needs of the disabled child and will provide physiotherapy, build muscle tone and promote play. It will also help benefit growth and development in a child with disabilities, enabling them to keep active and retain their independence.

The charity wants to hear from families of disabled children in Lincolnshire and is asking them to come forward and claim the life changing equipment. And they are urging families to get in touch as soon as possible before the specialist equipment is gone!

Trudi Beswick, Chief Executive of Caudwell Children, said: “We donate hundreds of life changing therapy tricycles to disabled children throughout the UK each year, but we currently have no applicants in county.

“Disabled children get huge physical and emotional benefits from having the specially adapted tricycles, which are each custom made to suit the individual child’s needs. “As well as providing regular exercise and physical therapy, the tricycles give children a renewed sense of inclusion which improves self-esteem and confidence.

“We are desperate to hear from anyone caring for a disabled child who will be able to benefit from the tricycles.”

If your family or anybody you know could benefit from this please contact Helen Brandley on at Caudwell Children on 01782 600854 or email helen.brandley@caudwellchildren.com.
