Grant UK’s donation helps Lucy to enjoy the freedom of movement

Published:  04 May, 2016

Grant UK has donated £500 to a fundraising cause, which is being organised by one of its suppliers.

Wendy Halford and her family are hoping to raise £2,500 to purchase her granddaughter a new dynamic stander. Ms Halford’s granddaughter, Lucy, has Spina Bifada and this piece of equipment will play a crucial role in her daily therapy.

Lucy’s condition prevents her from being able to walk and she relies on a wheelchair for mobility. As part of her daily therapy routine, Lucy completes standing exercises with the assistance of a frame. Standing allows Lucy’s bones to remain strong, prevents muscle contractures and improves her posture, to list just three benefits.

At present, Lucy is using a static standing frame. A dynamic standing frame would allow her the freedom of moving around, while also gaining from all of the benefits of standing upright. In 2010, the family raised money for a dynamic standing frame, which Lucy has since outgrown so this new campaign is working towards the purchase of a size two stander.
