Children Helped

Power FootballKenzie is a 7 year old boy, who has never been able to propel himself in a wheelchair. We are trying to raise enough money, for an electric chair called a snapdragon. Please help us to help Kenzie get the mobility he deserves.





BeatriceWe are actively supporting Beatrice and have been able to give her many grants thanks to money raised by her supporters on Just Giving and Virgin Money pages. The latest thing we have been able to do is give her a ..New custom manual wheelchair...which is fantastic. This has been done many from donations from members of the BCTTT club. Thank you so much to those that have helped us to help Beatrice.




MeganMegan is a very special little girl who caputres the heart of everyone she meets with her beaming smile and cheeky personality. 

Before birth Megan was diagnosed with Spina Bifida. As her parents our world seemed to stop spinning. Doctors predicted that she would be virtually unable to use her legs and be confined to a wheelchair. BUT, 3 years on she has proved every single medical professional wrong!

what my bank account was, how big my house
was, or what kind of car I drove. But the world
may be a little better, because I was important in the life of a child."
