Back in July this year, we awarded a grant to a gentleman with Cerebral Palsy who has been wheelchair bound for 5 years. The grant was used to purchase a new made to measure Rugby League Wheelchair. The chair will be used to play both Wheelchair Rugby League and Wheelchair 7’s which is the Rugby Union Version of Wheelchair Rugby.
Julian reported back to us that the chair is amazing and so manoeuvrable and quick. This will ensure that he is able to represent his own local rugby club and hopefully Wales in both versions of Wheelchair Rugby. The main benefit is comfort, giving him the ability to keep playing for many years, improving and enhancing his physical and mental health by keeping active and fit.
We're so happy to hear that our funding contribution is going to make such a difference to his life.
