Grace gets on her bike
The daughter of Adrian Ferrell, of Lodge of Fortitude, No. 131, Province of Cornwall, has received funding for a specialist tricycle to aid her mobility and enable her to cycle with friends.
Thanks to the commitment of lodge Almoner Ted Wallis and his understanding of who is eligible for support from the MSF, the charity has been able to provide a mobility grant to fund a custom-built bike for seven-year-old Grace.
Grace was born with cardiac problems and following a stroke her doctor recommended the use of a specialist tricycle to help strengthen her legs and assist with her walking. Her mother, Elaine Ferrell, said, ‘Grace is so much happier now that she can join in racing around with her friends. She loves her cycle, which was even supplied in red, her favourite colour.’
