Picture Story: PiMS Workspace Urges Hampshire Companies to Support Disabled Children

13-year-old Shelbi Grist of Waterlooville, Hampshire now has the freedom to explore her hometown thanks to her brand new, powered Beetle wheelchair. The wheelchair has been donated by local company PiMS Workspace, who was introduced to Shelbi through the national children’s mobility charity Whizz-Kidz.

Shelbi is a bubbly, friendly teenager who likes socialising with friends and is a keen wheelchair basketball player, with her sights firmly set on qualifying for the Great British 2012 Paralympic team. As Shelbi has McCune Albright Syndrome with Fibrous Displaysia, this causes her bones to break very easily, so she is unable to walk unaided and uses a wheelchair to move around outside.
