MONKSTOWN girl Jodie Gourley was among the Whizz-Kidz ambassadors who met up with the Belfast Knights wheelchair basketball team and Disability Sport NI to celebrate International Wheelchair Day recently.

Whizz-Kidz is a charity which provides local disabled children and young people with the right wheelchair at the right time so that they can be more independent and lead active childhoods at home, at play and at school. The impact is life-changing and long-lasting.

Kelly Shaw, Regional Fundraiser, explained: “This is an exciting time for Whizz-Kidz in Northern Ireland. We have been doing great work with young people through our Ambassador Clubs in Belfast, Londonderry and Armagh but with the support of the public we can do even more. We are always on the look out for new young people to join our Ambassador Clubs, so please get in touch if you know of anyone who would benefit.

“The difference Whizz-Kidz can make is remarkable and we want to reach out to as many children and young people as possible. We really need your help to help local disabled children.”
