Matthew takes to the park!

Five year old Matthew has recently received his new mobility trike thanks to a generous donation from The Light Fund.

Matthew’s mum contacted my AFK (Action For Kids) to ask for help to purchase a specialised Tomcat Trike to help him access outdoor activities and explore his environment for the first time.


Matthew has a multiple disabilities affecting his vision, mobility, and breathing. He is significantly delayed in all areas of his development. The trike will allow him be more mobile and less reliant on his mum and other adults.


Trikes like Matthews are made to fit and support the individual child and are very expensive compared to a standard child’s bike. Without support from donors likeĀ The Light Fund, my AFK would not be able to help young disabled children get their first taste of independence.
