Raising money for various disability specific items and equipment
I am delighted to let you all know that I have now received my new Chunc Manual specially adapted wheelchair and Mustang Electric chair!
Both my chairs are so comfortable as they are specially adapted to my complex needs and scoliosis.
Both chairs keep me in the correct posture and the Mustang chair is really cool as it has 5 different speed settings (I love to go fast when there is enough space!), a horn and headlights!, although my Dad’s and Mum’s driving isn’t always the best!, ha ha. The electric chair is for longer walks as this saves my mum and dads backs which are already kn*******!.
Thanks to everyone who donated to the Life for Lewis Appeal for my new chairs, it really does mean everything to me to be comfortable with my condition, and have the correct equipment for my complex needs is so important. Without your help I would probably be in a skip on wheels!.
Much love and thanks Lewis xxx

During 2015 we raised enough money for my dream of a wheelchair accessible/sensory garden at home.
My garden is now fully completed and it is absolutely amazing.
I can now access my garden in my wheelchair and spend quality time together with my Mummy, Daddy, sister and brother all together in our back garden, something which I was never been able to do in the past.
Thank you so much to everyone who donated towards my new Sensory garden I will be eternally grateful to all of you x

Runs4Funds is a fundraising initiative founded by Northamptonshire Steelbacks all-rounder, Steven Crook, that was born following an emotional meeting with two inspirational parents of Northampton-born, Lewis Herbert.
Lewis and his family’s story was covered in the local newspaper, where they spoke of their efforts to recruit fundraisers to help raise enough money to provide much-needed facilities and equipment for 12 year old LGS-sufferer, Lewis.
Throughout the 2015 season, Steven supported the A Life For Lewis Appeal by helping raise nearly £5,000 towards a much needed sensory garden for Lewis to enjoy. Read more.. Summer 2015 - Steven Crook Runs4Funds
