Two charitable organisations have joined forces to provide a special trike for a young boy who suffers from Hemiplegia a form of Cerebral Palsy.
Sleaford and District Lions Club and Kind Gestures of Sleaford have presented six-year-old Harry Whaley-Holmes with a trike which is suitable for him to be able to have access to freedom of movement without weight bearing and help him strengthen the leg muscles which is necessary for his growth.
The Hemiplegia affects Harry’s left side and weakens both of his left limbs.
Harry and his family live on the outskirts of Ruskington and he attends Digby CE Primary School.
Mum Lisa Whaley said: “It is his aim to one day cycle to the centre of the village, which is about one mile, using his new trike.
“He absolutely loves the trike. It’s great exercise and, from a parent’s point of view, it is nice that he can now be just one of the children on the street, when they are out on their bikes he can join them on his trike.”
Kind Gestures is a charitable trust set up by energy consultant Utility Aid to support good causes in the Sleaford area.
