Get Wendy Outdoors

Update posted by Wendy Fox On Nov 20, 2015

So the wait is over (thank you for your patience). My fabulous new chair is here! Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone that helped to make this possible. I can't even begin to put into words how having this chair will change my life. I also want to thank J.A.K Marketing Limited for all their help and continued support. Thanks again to you all. You've been beyond amazing!

P.S. I apologise for the poor sound quality on some of this video. I'm working with very basic equipment and after my repeated, rather amateur but best attempts to improve it, I failed.

This has to be one of the best updates anyone could have the pleasure of writing. Thanks to an incredibly generous and substantial donation from J.A.K Marketing, my target has been reached. This will now enable me to both purchase the power wheelchair and have funds available for the ongoing servicing and maintenance. 'Thank you' seems such an ineffective phrase to express the enormity of my gratitude, but I would like to say a huge, heartfelt thank you to J.A.K Marketing and to everyone that has donated. Having this chair means the ability to go out. It will mean having the freedom to choose. I will be able to be beside my husband again, to take our dogs to the park. I can pop round to the local shops for some milk. I can go for a stroll on the beach (something I haven?t been able to do in the 14 years I have been paralysed). And I can do so much more. Many people take these small things for granted but having that ability will mean the world to me.

The wheelchair will take approximately two months to build. I'm so, so excited, but waiting that time in the grand scheme of things is nothing if it means that my world will open up. An immense thank you again to each and everyone for your kindness and generosity. I will be forever grateful.

Thanks very much for your kind messages. It’s lovely to share the news with you all. I’m over the moon and I promise to post an update when I get the chair. Thank you again. xx

Oh my goodness - this is such good news! Your update has made my day and I’m in tears at this end! Can’t tell you how often you have been in my thoughts even though I know you don’t know me personally. I just know how much you helped me via email when I desperately needed some good sound advice on my tick bite and am just so relieved that your target has now been reached. Here’s wishing you some great trips outside with your new wheels! Best wishes, Maxine Davies.

This is my second update. I am so grateful for all the donations made towards the purchase of my wheelchair. Everyone has been incredibly kind and generous, and thank you so much for all the lovely messages. Following a visit to the Mobility Roadshow, I'm clear now as to exactly what kind of chair is best suited to my needs.

I\'m a wife and mum. I was left paralysed and partially sighted after contracting Lyme disease but despite my disability I volunteered for a UK-wide charity for 10 years. Now a change in my health has left me virtually housebound but a new kind of power wheelchair could literally change my life. With your help in funding this wheelchair I could not only enjoy being outdoors with my family and friends, I could possibly get back to volunteering, which would make me feel like I\'m giving something back to society again.
