RGF grantee, Toby, approached us in May 2022 to help him purchase off-road tyres for his wheelchair. Toby was struggling with the uneven ground in his local park when walking his dog. He also plays wheelchair rugby and competes in wheelchair racing.
Toby’s Mum, Leanne explains: “The Rob George Foundation’s support has enabled Toby toaccess parks and trails again. After his spinal cord injury in June 2021 to remove part of his cancer, our lives changed forever. Toby loved going to local parks, long walks with his dog and going on new adventures. After his operation Toby was left in a wheelchair and with the tremendous help of the Rob George Foundation, Toby has his freedom back to access all the beauty of the countryside and to participate in rugby and racing.”
RGF Trustee, David Cant, said: “I just love this photo of Toby. The smile, his amazing wheelchair with the new tyres and the beautiful backdrop. This is what the RGF is all about. It is Toby’s dream to compete in the Commonwealth Games or Paralympics, ideally winning a gold medal – well, he is on his way and who is going to stop him?! All the best Toby!”
