Wheelchair Wednesday 2018 Week 1 launched from Levyvale SUPERSPAR in Uitenhage.
The project slogan says it all: “Spend 4 hours in a wheelchair and change a life”
SPAR Eastern Cape sponsorship and events manager Alan Stapleton congratulated the wheelchair volunteers on taking up the challenge.
“You are very brave and by the end of the day you will have a completely different outlook on life,” he said.
“I know this because a year ago I was in your position and it was extremely humbling.
“We may not be able to change the world, but by doing something small like this you will be making a massive difference to somebody else’s life.
“While you are going through the pain of today and the difficulties you face remember that you are also raising funds to release someone who, right now, does not have a wheelchair and is totally reliant on being carried around.”
We will be updating the Facebook page regularly so keep checking back for all the highlights of this year’s campaign!
