A brave St Helens tot has had her life transformed after kindhearted charity workers came to the rescue.

Two-year-old Eva Ebbrell has recently undergone hip surgery, has complex care needs and is dependent on carers for assistance for all transfers.

As a result the youngster was unable to play with her friends and relax in at her day care centre.

But with the support of the ‘Squiggle’ seat, provided by charity funding, her quality of life has significantly improved, enabling her to get involved in all kinds of fun activities with all her friends.

Eva’s mum Wendy said: “Newlife, who provided the chair, have been invaluable, providing an emergency specialist bed loan when Eva was discharged from hospital.

“They also provided the specialist chair, which was funded by The Morgan Foundation, without which Eva wouldn’t be able to sit safely and comfortably in nursery.

“We will always be extremely grateful.”

Now the Morgan Foundation is working with Newlife to ensure more children with disabilities and terminal illness get the right equipment at the right time.

Steve Morgan, chairman of The Morgan Foundation, added: “Having a vital aid like this means Eva can sit safely and join in more activities with other youngsters.”

Newlife Foundation for Disabled Children is a national charity which works extensively with families across the region.

Newlife CEO Sheila Brown added: “We look forward to helping to transform more lives across The Morgan Foundation catchment area.”
