IRONMAN 4 Phillip

IRONMAN 4 Phillip

Personal message

My name is Charlotte and my quest would be to raise funds for Phillip Janse van Rensburg.  Phillip has been a resident at Cheshire Home Summerstrand since July 1998. Phillip is 52 and has Cerebral Palsy. His hobbies include his computer and riding down to the beach in the afternoons with his wheelchair.  I met Phillip as he is passing our house on a daily basis and he always stops to strike up a conversation.

Phillip's wheelchair is his key to his freedom every afternoon.

Phillip's wheelchair is operated by a specialized gear that is powered by a special battery and operated with his chin.  

Recently his wheel chair’s battery has been given him trouble and because of the elements close to the sea, his wheelchair is exposed to rust and is in need of a serious makeover.

Phillip's parents are pensioners and unable to afford a new wheelchair.

I would like to make a difference in his life by raising funds to buy him a brand new one.

I need all the support I can get to help me raise funds.

Not only will it enable Phillip to continue riding down to the beach every day, but it will also create awareness in the community of the special needs of many others at Cheshire Home, where Phillip is taken care of.

The funds will be transferred to Cheshire House for the disabled. The manager at Chesire House will receive and manage the fund donated to Phillip. She will then assist the parents to buy a new wheelchair.  Should I be able to raise more than the specific target, the funds will be used to buy Phillip a new laptop.

Chesire Home will issue an 18A receipt for tax benefit purposes if so required.
