Aaron gives his new trike two thumbs up!

Little boy on adapted trike giving thumbs up

Aaron is a 2-year-old boy from Liverpool.

He likes watching Mr Tumble, singing nursery rhymes, communicating using Makaton signs and reading books.


Aaron loves being outdoors and really enjoys going to playgroup. Aaron and his family live very close to a country park and love going regularly to see the horses and play in the playground.


Yet Aaron has complex needs and has very weak muscles, hypermobility and his speech and motor development are significantly delayed. His disability affects his daily life as he is very unsteady on his feet.


my AFK funded a tricycle recommended by his physiotherapist to help build his strength.


Aaron was very happy when he got his new trike!


His mum told us: “We are so grateful for Aaron’s trike, thank you to everyone involved. He absolutely loves it and was so happy to ride his trike next to his big sister on her bike. He was unable to use a conventional trike so this has made a little boy extremely happy and will also help build up his muscles to support his mobility. Thank you so much!”
