Adapted trike gives Faith, 3, 'freedom' as Sussex charity issues plea for donations

  • ITV Meridian's report is by Charlotte Wilkins

An adapted trike given to a little girl by a Sussex charity has given her freedom her mum could have only dreamed of.

Three-year-old Faith Preece was born with a brain injury and is both visually and hearing impaired. Her disabilities affect her balance and mobility.

Although life can be a challenge for the family - the new piece of equipment has brought a smile to all of their faces.

Faith was born with a brain injury and has visual and hearing impairments.

Chailey Heritage Foundation, based in Lewes, which supports young people like Faith, is taking part in The Big Give - an opportunity for organisations to double their donations through match funding.

Head of Fundraising at Chailey Heritage Foundation, Will Folkes, said: "A lot of these young people get written off and we really just don’t know what their potential might be until we explore it."

The campaign to raise £10,000 runs until Tuesday next week.

If the target is reached and doubled, they hope to buy five trikes and two walkers to give other children like Faith the freedom that many others take for granted.
