Helping Others With Your Support
With your help PBF are able to support those living with SCI. We were recently able to provide funding for Barry Houston to acquire a new electric wheelchair. The immediate positive impact that this has had on his quality of life is best described by Bonnie, his wife and carer. They are now able to enjoy a relaxing stroll together, something that most of us take for granted.
“This electric wheelchair has meant that Barry and I can go for a walk together along the walking track at the bottom of our estate. Previously, I could have pushed him in his manual wheelchair but I would not have been able to push him back up the incline to our house.
This also makes him independent on our stroll. He can stop and talk to the dogs and their owners as it suits him. I do love to have a walk. It is so lovely for me to now be able to have a walk with my husband without pushing from behind, unable to have a proper conversation.
I can even hold his hand and walk beside him.”
It is hearing stories like Barry and Bonnie’s that highlights the importance, and real value, of PBF’s Gifting Fund. We thank you all for your ongoing support.
