Joshua Freeman is a 6 year adorable little boy with Cerebral Palsy who attends Walford Primary School. Apart from his wheelchair his only other mode of ambulation is his tricycle, which allows him to join in with his friends during playtime in the playground at school.
When Ross Lions were approached to help fund a new trike for Joshua, they were keen to help as he had outgrown his current one. As a result the Lions were able to fund the new tomcat trike, which cost £1300.00.
The Tomcat Trike is specially designed for children and young adults with special needs and comes with a unique range of options to suit individual requirements. The custom-built Tomcat is available from approximately age 4 to adult, depending on size
Joshua’s mother, Lyuda Freeman, said “in addition to allowing him his independence, the tricycle also helps to strengthen the muscles of his lower limbs and improve his sense of position”. She and her husband Jim would like to express their sincere appreciation to Ross-on-Wye Lions Club, for funding the new tricycle.
It was a pleasure to provide Joshua with his new trike, his smile said it all.
