A woman from Gants Hill, who has cerebral palsy, is appealing for donations to help fund a specialist exercise machine for her.

Ellie Mason, 38, is hoping to buy a Medicotech Tigo 510, a wheelchair exercise bike, which will help her continue to exercise now that she is unable to go to the gym and swimming pool.  

Writing on her fundraising page, Ellie said: “Since lockdown I have not been able to go out as I am in the “Clinically Vulnerable” group and I must be very careful. I have noticed that I am finding transferring more difficult as the muscles in my legs have been losing tone and strength.

“Having this bike will mean I can exercise and tone my legs and arms in my own home and build up my strength again.”

Ellie is hoping to raise £6,500 to buy the bike. As of 4pm on Friday, 6 November, £540 has been donated so far.

You can donate to Ellie’s fundraising page here.
