The Community Link Foundation was delighted to be able to assist a grant request from Janet Wright who was seeking assistance for her daughter Ellen Diana Wright.
Ellen has Downs Syndrome and loves cycling but finds it difficult on her own, her parents have struggled to find a suitable bike to help Ellen but eventually came across a Dutch company who make special side by side tandem bikes that provide a safe use for parents to take their children cycling.
Janet told Community Link Foundation “This bike will allow us to take Ellen on family bike rides, she loves the outdoors and with this bike our whole family will benefit. We will now be able to enjoy the experiences that other families do, I am so grateful to Community Link Foundation”
Community Link Foundation chairperson David Barron said â”when we saw this grant application we were truly touched by the impact we could have on the entire family. Hopefully using this bike will allow Ellen to fully enjoy the cycling experience with her family and help improve her confidence at the same time.”
