Heidi’s Trike

We were lucky enough to be able to co-ordinate the delivery of our latest Enable funded equipment so that it arrived in time for a special girl’s birthday!

Ten year old Heidi, who has cerebral palsy and autism, lives in Deeside. Her mum, Allison applied to the Steve Morgan Foundation Enable fund for assistance with a Tomcat trike for Heidi, which will help improve her muscle tone and independence.  Tomcat Trikes did a sterling job and got the bike ready in time for her birthday; what a lovely surprise for Heidi to receive a sparkling pink trike, complete with hooter, pink and purple balloons and a basket for her toys, to mark her 10th birthday!  Mum and Dad were overwhelmed to see Heidi take off on the bike and her smile says it all.

Allison told us, “I can’t begin to say how extremely grateful we are to you all for your wonderful kind generosity of granting Heidi her trike.  It truly means so very much to us that you’ve given her the chance to gain her independence and confidence as she is limited to what she can do.  She absolutely loves her bike and couldn’t wait to show it off to her aunty, uncle and cousins. Heidi has had a fabulous day and to have the trike topped it off.  I thank you again for all you have done.”

 

Go Heidi Go!
