Wheelchair gives Freya whole new lease of life.

A BRAVE teenager who suffers from a congenital form of dwarfism has been given a new lease of life thanks to the donation of a specialist wheelchair.

Freya Tyndall, 13, from Linthwaite, has achondroplasia, which makes it difficult for her to move around and interact with friends.

The new specialist wheelchair from national children's charity The Boparan Charitable Trust will allow her to move with greater ease and is heightadjustable, which means she will be able to intact on the same level as friends and family.

She was presented with the chair by charity trustee Baljinder Boparan, at Newsome High School, where Freya is a pupil.

Jane Tyndall, Freya's mum, said: "I cannot thank the trust enough for helping us to get Freya this wheelchair, the world is now her oyster and it opens up so many avenues for her to enjoy life like other teenagers."

Mrs Boparan said: "It is so fantastic to be able to support Freya and her family in this way. Every young person deserves to have their own freedom and independence."

The Boparan Charitable Trust helps those with disabilities, life-limiting conditions or in extreme poverty.
