Carly Gets Her Trike In Time For Christmas

December 16th 2015

Thanks to a community fundraising push which involved Rolec, a local 3-year-old girl with an undiagnosed neurological disorder now owns a special trike which will help to change her life.

Rolec’s International Business Development Manager Bianca Orrey has been one of those at the forefront of helping to raise money to buy Carly Kitchen two pieces of equipment – an EyeGazer to help her communicate, and the trike - with other donations coming from Rolec staff, Guy Maude, MS Events, D Signs, Boston Audi, Julian’s Car Care and EV One Stop.

Carly is unable to talk, cannot sit up independently and has a 'global tremor' -  meaning her body can’t stop shaking and as a result she cannot do sign language and is confined to a wheelchair.

Her parents Nicky and Kev aim to make her life as normal as possible by buying her equipment which will help her develop. Carly already had a harness which straps to an adult and gives her the ability to stand and walk – and now the fundraising has helped her become the proud owner of a sparkly-pink Tomcat Trike too.

Nicky commented: “Carly's trike arrived just in time for her 4th birthday, what a fantastic day it was. She is already attempting to pedal and is so happy when she is on the trike. Myself and Kev are so overwhelmed, it was very emotional to see her on it.

“Thank you once again to all at Rolec for the support in helping raise the money for the Tomcat Trike, along with the EyeGazer which is in the pipeline for the future.”

Some of the other contributors to the fundraising have so far included:

  • Let Us Let U
  • Smart Move
  • Electrix Celutions
  • Taylor Made Services
