BIG-HEARTED fundraisers have successfully raised enough money to get Elysha Robertson (10) a new, mobile wheelchair, giving the youngster greater freedom in her day-to-day life.

Andrew Tait had climbed Mount Kilimanjaro to raise thousands of pounds towards the procurement of Elysha’s new chair, with Gregor Ferguson climbing Bennachie to raise further funds.

Cheers Cafe, Bar and Tavern also made a donation towards Elysha’s new chair, bringing the total funds raised to around £11,000.

With that, Elysha has been able to get a mobile powerchair that she can steer with her feet, and can now elevate herself to different heights.

The Turbo Trust also made a contribution to get Elysha her upgrade.

The Turbo Trust are a provider in hi-tech equipment like Elysha’s, hoping to enable disabled people to achieve their dreams.

Elysha’s parents, Grace and Martin Robertson, would like to thank everyone involved in fundraising for Elysha, including her sister, Shannah Robertson, Alysha-May Grant, Andrew Tait, and Gregor, Jean, Wendy, Sahara, Ariana, and Daniel Ferguson, as well as everyone who sponsored the climbs.

Elysha’s powerchair was built by Dragon
Mobility.
