Sudbury: inclusive child trolley
Little Chad Wright can now enjoy shopping trips with his mum after getting his own specially-made trolley.
Four year old Chad, of Sudbury, suffers from muscular dystrophy and hasn’t been able to go shopping with his mum and sisters since he grew too big for the standard trolley child seats.
However, after his mum Penny spoke to Sudbury Department Manager Alice Lane, the branch decided it had to find a solution to allow Chad to once again enjoy shopping.
Alice contacted Bracknell Head Office, who arranged for a tailor-made trolley to be built. The new trolley has a special seat with a head rest which gives Chad the support he needs, allowing him to sit upright for extended periods of time.
Also as well as being used by Chad, this will benefit other children with disabilities.
