Rugby Rokeby Lions Club Pancake Race

Mia, a 9 year old girl who has been blind since birth, has a small vocabulary enabling her to communicate with her parents and siblings but suffers from low muscle tone and is unable to walk, stand, sit or raise herself from a lying position without adult support. This means she has to be physically carried wherever she goes or be transported by wheelchair and on top of that, she also has cerebral palsy.

To support Mia and her family, Rugby Rokeby Lions are using the proceeds of this year’s Pancake Race to purchase a special Safety Chair in order that she can share the enjoyment of being able to sit unaided inside the house or outside with the rest of the family and be involved with everyday activities that we all take for granted.
