Wisbech Lions have presented £1,000 to a local youngster to provide her with a power wheelchair.

The donation will also help support a fund for future maintenance, insurance and adaptation to enable Sophie Clarke to become more mobile and independent.

Thanks to amazing support the eight year old has already been for her fitting and will take delivery of her power wheels on April 15.

The chair is designed to grow with Sophie so that with available ongoing adaptation it will see her into adulthood.
