We are hoping to raise £1500 in order to buy a specialist trike for Tyrese.
Tyrese will be 8-years-old at the end of the month and is a bright, outgoing and adventurous young man. He also has autism which was diagnosed when he was a toddler. Being very sociable, Tyrese has lots of friends at school and in the area where he lives. Like any other boy his age, he loves to play out and join in, he is really good at football, which is one of of his favourite games. Having autism means that Tyrese struggles with balance and finds it really difficult to ride a standard bike, like the ones his friends have. The school Tyrese attends has a few specialist trikes and he loves nothing more than to zip around the playground having a great time. We would like to purchase one of these trikes for Tyrese, so that he can enjoy the freedom and inclusion it gives him after school hours too – weekends and holidays would be ideal. Living with his mum and two brothers in Lancashire, they have been quoted £1500 for a customised trike for Tyrese. This includes delivery and the trike would be adaptable for Ty as he grows but it is too much for mum to raise on her own…this is where you come in:) Please could you donate to #TrikeforTyrese using the Paypal link below… It only takes a minute, every penny counts and all the money donated will go to Tyrese’s Trust, an account set up to hold the funds until we reach the target and can order the trike. If you could share this post with friends and family it would be much appreciated, let’s get Tyrese the wheels that will make all the difference;) #TrikeForTyrese
