Current Mission: All Terrain Track Chair to get on the beach with her friends in summer. Similar to photo.
Charlotte was born 24th November 2003.
At 6 months old she was hit by the killer virus meningitis enduring 22 operations to date.
She had all four limbs amputated.
Charlotte is New Zealand's first and youngest quadruple amputee.
In Charlotte's 13th year we are currently fund raising for an all terrain track chair that will allow her to get on the beach with her friends in summer.
Surrounded by beautiful beaches she can't access in a regular chair, Charlotte is missing the Kiwi lifestyle her friends take for granted.
Charlotte has a great attitude to life. Her only limitation is the extraordinary costs of being able to realise her potential and keep up with her able-bodied friends.
To give you some idea of what your donation will be helping Charlotte with, the video link is to an all terrain track chair similar to what she will need.
Any donation, no matter how small, will give Charlotte the opportunity to fulfill her dream of being able to enjoy a day at the beach with friends and family like other Kiwi kids.
The funds for the Charlotte Lucy Trust provides a "Can Do" attitude where we can introduce mobility that allows Charlotte free movement and access that is dignified into her future movements in life.
