Children like Matt have lost precious months of childhood this year. They urgently need your help to enjoy their young lives again and reach their full potential. Please donate today.
Matt is a 7-year- old who has a real need for speed, with a love of cars and racing and is always focused on going faster.
Matt had a spinal cord injury during pregnancy and was later diagnosed with Arthrogryposis. He is paralysed from the waist down.
His old wheelchair from his local service weighed 15 kilos, which was too heavy for his parents to comfortably push him. Then they discovered Whizz-Kidz and applied for a wheelchair built specifically for Matt's needs.
"His old wheelchair made him aware he was disabled but now he feels like he can be himself and do anything” -
Kerry (Matt's Mum)
Matt’s Whizz-Kidz wheelchair (in his favourite Team Red Bull colours) is a third lighter than his old one and now he can speed around keeping up with his friends, pull wheelies and show off tricks in the playground.
He fundraised £2,000 for Whizz-Kidz this spring because as he says “I want to help other boys and girls just like me”.
Matt has gained his independence, but we want to reach 100 more children who don't have the right equipment before the end of the year, please donate today to provide this life changing support.
