|I don't normally have my parents on hand to assist so the transfer is even more difficult than it looks...|
I currently have a turnout system so the passenger seat swivels out to the side and I move across into my wheelchair. That used to be fine because I could (with the support of the car door) stand, pivot and then smoothly sit down. Now my legs are weaker, I end up basically flinging my body across and hoping that I don’t hit the floor. Increasingly, I am ending up on the deck and have to rely on passers by to lift my hefty frame up. This happened twice today; once in town and once on my driveway. Luckily, there were people around to help on both occasions, otherwise my carer and I would have been stuck for ideas.

|The Carony Classic will completely eliminate dangerous transfers like this!|
I will give frequent updates on how the fundraising is going so make sure you check back to the page regularly (although I will share any news on here of course). You’ll also notice on the site that there are rewards if you give a certain amount so be sure to check them out!
Bye for now!
