The Newland family saddles up

The Newman family of Truro can now go cycling together, thanks to the wishgranting charity, Make-A-Wish Foundation UK, who have provided them with a specially adapted bike for wheelchair users.

Now parents Chaz and Karen, and their daughters, 10-year-old Chloe and 15-year-old Amy who has Rett Syndrome and is confined to a wheelchair, are looking forward to warmer weather to take to the cycling trails.
