My son Jordan was born with a medical condition called caudal regression syndrome - sacral agenesis. Because of this he uses a wheelchair fulltime. He is a very indepent and strong person who enjoys exploring and joining in outdoor activities and sports. He has a standard wheelchair to move himself around on a daily basis, but this chair limits him to flat level surfaces only. He is unable to travel independently, up kerbs, across unlevel surfaces, steep hills and so on. Today we travelled to a bike hire centre in Coleford and tried out a new type of wheelchair. An off road all terrain wheelchair that allowed my son to travel along a bike path with a gravel surface, up hill and down hill, completely independently, The first time he has been able to travel in these conditions independently of myself or another person pushing him along. For my son to be able to have a wheelchair of this type would be life changing, from simply navigating kerbs as he went to the shops or popped to his nans house, to enjoying walks in the countryside or on the beach, it would open up a whole new level of independence for him. The all terrain wheelchair my son tried out is called a mountain trike, these cost £3995 each.

*** Update *** After a massive donation from close family members the deposit for Jordans trike is now paid! We are truly grateful for this fantastic donation, which now means Jordan will be able to receive his Trike a lot lot sooner than we had ever imagined!!
We now have a new fundraising target of £1750 for the final payment of the trike and I have updated the fundrasing page to reflect this.

Thank you so much for all of your donations so far, they are really appreciated! *****
In order to help raise funds for my son to get a mountain trike I will be organising a sponsored bike ride / walk on the bristol to bath cycle path, everyone is welcome to join us on the bike ride and be sponsored to ride / walk with us. I am looking into getting tshirts printed for this.
Any donations are also welcome if you would like to help but not join in the sponsored event.
Any donation, and any help or sponsor money anyone is able to donate will be greatly appreciated.
thank you all xx
