alice-43-year old Alice Pitcher of Kenilworth is the proud owner of a brand new therapy tricycle thanks to the generosity of Kenilworth Lions members.

Alice has a weakness in her right leg, and currently no use of her arm, so the specially-designed tricycle will help to strengthen her right leg and encourage use of her right arm, while giving her a whole new freedom of movement to go out with her family and to play with other children.

The tricycle, in a vibrant pink colour which mum Jaynie says is Alice’s favourite colour, will last her for at least three years.

Kenilworth Lions raises many thousands of pounds every year through major events like the Boxing Day Duck Race, the Grand Show and from its furniture store in Farmer Ward Road. The majority of its funds go to support local good causes, such as helping Alice to overcome some of the mobility challenges which she faces.
