THE parents of a 16 month old disabled boy are appealing for donations for a powered wheelchair so he can move around independently.
Charlie Bolton from Orpington was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy type two at 12 months old, and the condition has left him unable to crawl, kneel, stand, walk or sit up from a lying position.
His parents Aimee Spiers and Edward Bolton want him to have an electric wheelchair, but have been told by the NHS one is not likely to be available until he is five years old.
So they have started a campaign to raise the £18,000 needed for the wheelchair, which they say will allow him to “interact and socialise with his peers and have some independence”.
