Thameside Wheelchair Dancing

My name is Jane, I am 26 years old and I have cerebral palsy. About a year ago I joined a wheelchair dancing group in Southend called Thameside Wheelchair dancing. I absolutely love it, it has helped me make new friends and built my confidence, normally I am a very shy person. And I recently competed in my first dance competition which I loved.

I would love a sporty wheelchair so I can do the same routines as my friends in group. At the moment I use my electric wheelchair so my dances have to be simplified. Not only will the sporty wheelchair help with dancing but it will also help with my fitness. The cost of the wheelchair that I need is £1200. I would love other people to join wheelchair and able bodied people to dance with us in our chairs
