“The powered chair and its flexibility make a world of difference to Nina. Because of her visual impairment the NHS will not fund a powered chair so the only way that Nina can have a degree of independence is to have use of a powered chair.
This is an absolute necessity at college where she can navigate the routes to the various classes and get involved in learning how to take visual prompts when out in the community. The other really useful feature for Nina of this chair is the ‘recline’ position.
Since Nina’s spinal surgery, sitting for long periods can be uncomfortable so it a great relief to be able to recline even for short periods. As far as the family goes it is just the pleasure of knowing that Nina has the best and most appropriate seating available.”

“It will make such a huge difference to Connor and our family as we will be able to explore more places. He is getting so big that it is almost impossible now to push him uphill, and any uneven terrain was just inaccessible.
The powered chair gives us the freedom to go anywhere now, regardless of how steep the hills are! It really will make such a big difference to all our lives.
Really can’t thank the generosity of the Peter Alliss Masters charity enough for their life changing contribution.”
– Shelley, Connor’s Mum
