Jemima’s next gift will be a specially designed wheelchair to enable 15 year old Texas to further his very promising career in basketball. Texas currently plays for his school basketball team, which is an able-bodied team, even though he is a wheelchair-user. This means that he is unable to “shoot” as he cannot jump and bounce his chair. The new chair will allow him to partake fully in the game and as the team is already at national final level, who knows what will happen next?
Texas’ ambition is to compete in the paralymic basketball team and we wish him all the luck in the world!
