An act of Sandcruiser® kindness…
bringing smiles and happiness to others!!
When a year 9 Australian student Tayla Biscoe was recently on crutches and unable to go on an excursion to the beach with her school friends, she felt very left out. As a result, Tayla struggled to catch up at school, as the purpose of the excursion was to collect data for a science assignment. Having experienced exclusion, Tayla’s thoughts then were directed to another fellow student Toby Meeks at the college, who is confined to a wheelchair and experiences these issues on a regular basis.
Knowing a standard wheelchair was not going to work for most school excursions, Tayla then went on to conduct her own research to determine which all-terrain/ beach wheelchair would provide the inclusion that Toby and other students require for college excursions. The popular Sandcruiser® was quickly identified as the best option for the college.
Tayla then prepared a submission for the local Rotary Club of Morphett Vale (SA) to consider. A short time later, Rotary came to the rescue and donated a brand new Sandcruiser® to the Encounter Lutheran College (South Australia)!! Not only has Rotary donated the Sandcruiser®, but they have also provided insurances, maintenance, and storage requirements also. While the Sandcruiser® will be housed at the college, members of the community are welcome to access the chair by prior arrangements with the school.
