We helped Lewis spend
time with his family.
Lewis Mitchell’s father Charles is expanding the wireless world by developing mobile computing and machine-to-machine communications.
Lewis, who has autism & developmental delay, loved going out on bike rides with his family. When he grew out of his tag-along cycle, Charles researched a replacement the expensive replacement was way beyond the family's budget. Believing Lewis had so much to gain from continued independence, Charles contacted our helpline. He was advised of the grant application process and delighted when a grant was offered towards the cost. Lewis loves his bike which will allow him to continue cycling safely with his family for years to come.
