Last Wednesday Marg and Brian Symth of Quakers Hill celebrated when their four-year-old son Callum was fitted with his Buddy Roamer Posterior Walker.
The walker is open at the front and will allow Callum, who has cerebral palsy, easy access through doors and down hallways while still providing excellent stability for exploration both indoors and out.
Another major feature of the walker for Callum is he will be able to interact freely and learn, explore and discover and the joy of movement.
Greg English, District Chairman of the Australian Lions Children’s Mobility Foundation, attended Callum’s fitting with local Lions Club members Myra and Theo Bentley, Marilyn Coventry and Helen and Bob Rose.
The donation of The Buddy Roamer Posterior Walker was a joint project of Castle Hill, Crestwood and Kellyville Lions Clubs.
Since 1997 Lions Clubs have spent over $9 million dollars to assist more than 1600 children with cerebral palsy and other disabilities to walk with the aid of a walker.
The Foundation’s motto is ""May every child walk with pride for it is their right."
