01 May Disabled boy gifted new wheelchair
Disabled boy gifted new wheelchair by MobiQuip & Van OS Medical
The South Croydon boy has lived most of his life with ataxia-telangiectasia, a rare, life-shortening genetic disorder.
His mum Siobhan said the past few weeks had been “really hard.”
“We had a holiday booked, but I didn’t budget for having to hire out a wheelchair because we had our own,” she said.
“We couldn’t afford one so me and my sister had to take turns carrying Brae.
“It was all a bit of a nightmare.”
To make matters worse, they had another trip to a caravan park planned for the end of May, a trip Mrs Sewell said they may have had to cancel if Brae couldn’t get a new chair.

But then she received a phone call that she would not soon forget.
Richard Tamblyn-Smith from mobility equipment company MobiQuip had seen the story of Brae in the Croydon Guardian and wanted to help.
