WheelsForGood” is an organisation born out of the knowledge that “with wheels, one could achieve inner freedom and be happier

We believe that skating is a sport that improves the physical and mental wellbeing of those who practice it; and also constitutes a practical transport system, since it is hands free. We use our free hands to help others.

Our mission is to: 

Help others gain independence and free from oppression, social injustice or any disablement that affects their day-to-day life.

Our immediate goals: To raise funds in acquiring a wheelchair adaptor for Joshua’s wheelchair so that he can join our social skating activities and events.

My story: 

My name is Joshua Emmanuel, I was born at 25 weeks and spent the first 6 months of my life in the incubator at the intensive care unit, surviving with cerebral palsy, four limb involvement and global development delay and significant learning difficulties. 

I try to do what other kids of my age can do but at my own slow pace. “I was told I may never walk but now I have steps, I was told I may never talk but now I have a voice”.

I don’t see my disability as a disablement, I see it as a different ability to fulfil my potential.

I love rollerblading but can’t do it by myself, I have to be pushed on an adapted wheelchair which gives me the same experience as skating, 

I feel the same movement and energy in my limbs as skaters feel whilst pushing me.

I am reaching out to you to help me achieve my freedom on wheels and independence by contributing towards the purchase of a new adapted wheelchair. 

Thank you in advance for your support.”

Mr King, Joshua’s Dad, and a student from the club has brought this idea up after a couple of sessions with the “Wheels & Wheelchairs” community in Battersea Park on a Saturday morning. In that activity, he realised that specific adaptors are used for the existing wheelchairs. The tools enable the wheelchair to participate in the EasySaturdaySkate and SundayStroll.

For the cause of getting an adaptor for Joshua, we decided to raise money through various programmed activities, and we would like to invite as many people as possible to participate. If you wanna be part of this project, please contact us:  londonskatelife@gmail.com
