Claire’s mum Lyn May contacted us asking for a donation of £500 towards a wheelchair for her daughter Claire. She had been tirelessly fund raising for an electric wheelchair for her daughter Claire, 47. Claire had spent many years in a manual wheelchair due to having both legs amputated above the knees in 2012. Before that she spent many years in excruciating pain with gangrene in both legs after first having her toes removed and the wounds not healing added to which she has a protruding disc in her lower back. Claire had been told that she would not qualify for an electric chair until her shoulders and wrists do not work anymore? Lyn was trying to raise nearly £7,000.
