Welcome To Lewis' Website

Life for Lewis Appeal

Hi, my name is Lewis Herbert

Thank you so much for visiting my site.

During 2015 we raised enough money for my dream of a wheelchair accessible/sensory garden at home.  Thank you so much to each and everyone of you who donated towards my new garden it's absolutely amazing, and 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 have never been able to do.  

Full details about the sensory garden can be found in the fundraising projects section of the website

My Mummy and Daddy have decided to continue fundraising for me as unfortunately due to my complex disability I am always going to need various disability specific items and equipment which are not available to me through standard NHS provision. The majority of the items are a necessity due to my extremely complex disability and condition.
