Our national raffles are one of our most popular fundraising initiatives, and with so many chances to win it is easy to see why!
Each year our raffles help to meet the cost of suitable vehicles and special adaptations needed to enable disabled people like James (whose story you can read about below), to enjoy the freedom of mobility.
James is 18. He has taken part in wheelchair marathons, loves swimming and is studying media and film studies at 6th form college – following a passion for films that has stayed with him for most of his life. Next year James is hoping to pass his driving test. James isn’t your ‘average’ teenager – he has cerebral palsy and has been confined to a wheelchair all his life.
James joined the Motability Scheme in 2001 as a passenger. James mum Sarah says, “As well as enabling James to get to all the sporting events he loves, our vehicle has also meant that he’s been able to take advantage of mainstream education which has been really important.”
When James became old enough to begin learning to drive, he applied to Motability for a charitable grant towards driving lessons. He is now learning to drive in his own Motability car which has been adapted to suit his needs.
“Before Motability, I used to be completely reliant on my parents to take me where I needed to go,” says James. “I am now able to take driving lessons in my own Motability car as it has been fitted with mechanical hand controls and steering aids. I cannot wait to pass my test and be able to drive myself to and from college.”
