Kara, a 7 year old with Cerebral Palsy from Walker in Newcastle, has no independent mobility. Kara's school, Percy Hedley, applied for a R82 Wombat Activity Seat for Kara to have at home. The chair will give Kara the physical support she needs and will allow her to take part in many activities, such as cooking at home, arts and crafts, eating meals with her family and simply watching TV.
This chair will also ease the physical burden that is currently upon her family. Statutory services are unable to fund the chair; therefore Smile For Life has awarded £2,430 to cover the full cost of the chair.
