Alanah-Nicole Kirkby was born with physical and cognitive disabilities and has developed significant health issues. As Alanah has grown, so has her wheelchair and the current family car can no longer accommodate her equipment. As Alanah is about to begin pre school 5 days per week, the family was in urgent need of a bigger vehicle.
WA Charity Direct purchased a special purpose van for the family. This has allowed Alanah to be seated in her specialised Zippie wheelchair whilst being transported, which has been an enormous help for Mum Veronica. The van is spacious enough to transport the medical equipment Alanah is required to travel with and comfortable for other family members.
