Disabled boy gifted new wheelchair

Disabled boy gifted new wheelchair by MobiQuip & Van OS Medical

It has been more than a month since the wheelchair that nine-year-old Brae Sewell relies on to get around was stolen.

The South Croydon boy has lived most of his life with ataxia-telangiectasia, a rare, life-shortening genetic disorder.

His mum Siobhan said the past few weeks had been “really hard.”

“We had a holiday booked, but I didn’t budget for having to hire out a wheelchair because we had our own,” she said.

“We couldn’t afford one so me and my sister had to take turns carrying Brae.

“It was all a bit of a nightmare.”

To make matters worse, they had another trip to a caravan park planned for the end of May, a trip Mrs Sewell said they may have had to cancel if Brae couldn’t get a new chair.

But then she received a phone call that she would not soon forget.

Richard Tamblyn-Smith from mobility equipment company MobiQuip had seen the story of Brae in the Croydon Guardian and wanted to help.
