Hello. I’m Paul West, a member of the Rotary Club of Doncaster, and have agreed to help my friend Marc in his campaign to raise sufficient money to purchase a standing wheelchair which he now desperately needs.

This is his story:-

I was born with cerebral palsy in 1972 and have been confined to a wheelchair for most of my life which has been provided by the NHS. My disability affects my whole body and I cannot sit unsupported nor stand and continually need help with a number of daily tasks such as washing, dressing and toileting. Having the right wheelchair has been absolutely crucial to me maintaining any sort of productive life. Unfortunately, as I approach 50 years of age, my physical needs and deterioration are no longer met by the chair I have at present. As I have grown older my body becomes less and less mobile and the consequences of this lack of mobility have been fatigue, illness and daily pain and I am now unable to do many of the things I could do before. I can no longer transfer easily into bed and am not able to use any toilet other than my own which means that I cannot leave my house for any length of time.

Due to the inability to raise my feet, I have begun in the past few years to have extreme swelling in my legs and feet and suffer with ulcers. My legs have been bandaged for the past 2 years and I have not been able to sleep anywhere except in my wheelchair or take a bath for the past 18 months. The fundamental issue is that I need to be independent and able to choose and alter my position during the day, to elevate my legs, to lie down, to reposition my body and to stand with greater support. This can only be alleviated by having a wheelchair that offers greater flexibility such as a standing wheelchair- these are expensive and way beyond my means. I have never asked for money from anyone for myself and feel greatly embarrassed to do so now but I just feel that movement and life, or life as it should be anyway, is beginning to seem more like a luxury to me which it shouldn’t be. I also feel that I am failing as a husband and father at the moment by the added burden I’m placing on everybody and my inability to help as I should”

Marc has been assessed and a chair will be built specifically to meet all his needs, it being a Permobil F5 VS supplied at a cost of £25,000. This cost includes the specialist extra required by Marc.

As Marc has said he cannot afford to pay for this himself and we are jointly appealing to the public to donate to this very good cause. I know only too well how hard life is for Marc at present and having a standing wheelchair will make such a difference to him and his family. So please help if you can, any amount however big or small will be very much appreciated and we offer our thanks in advance.

The Perfect Gift

Looking for the perfect gift
To give our friends a bit of a lift
At the end of such a rubbish year
What can we give to add some cheer

When the future's not bright, and cash is tight
How do you show you care
Maybe a text or a call, maybe that's all
Just to show you'll always be there

The price tag doesn’t matter
The thought really is the thing
A chat, just a bit of a natter
Instead of some expensive bling

Spike wrote about how a smile
Made him start smiling too
And how it started spreading
Just like having the flu

So with that as inspiration
There's something as a nation
We could maybe just get trending
The gift of care, so easy to share
Without any needless spending

It's something you won't find under the tree
It's something we can share for free
If you look in the shops, you just won't find
It's simply this,……… let's just be kind.
