  1. Hi all

    I received this request today from a lady who may be a site visitor, but one of you may be able to assist/suggest an idea. Please do - I don't know his regiment, but someone may know him.

    Thanks in advance


    PM was blown up and is fully quadriplegic and lives in Scotland, and is about 30 yrs old. He has been invited to a Thanksgiving Service on 10th September @ St Pauls. However, he will need to find accommodation which will support his needs:
    - he is in a power chair, so needs clearance/access
    - a high bed with underneath clearance (preferably a hospital type bed)
    - a bed hoist
    - and, FYI, he uses a pump.
    - any vehicle he uses would have to have a ramp; he's having to come by train rather than fly as he can't have any additional air pressure.

    Can you offer any help pls? Or give me any contacts who may be able to?
