Stairlifts are increasingly becoming more of an essential fixture for households to have to help people go about their day to day lives with ease and pride. There are many reasons why a person may need a Stairlift to help accommodate them whether it be through an injury, operations, old age, diseases and so on.


A group of students at Devizes School have raised nearly £1000 for a local Charity Branch that helps families and those who suffer from Motor Neurone Disease.


A total of £928.80 was raised all from applying non-school uniform days, cake sales and so on to help those families in the local Wiltshire Community who are affected by MND.


Alison Aviss, Chairman of the MND Charity group, met with the students who helped raise all these funds for aiding and specialist commitment, and upon arrival was presented with a cheque of £928.80 towards her charity. In turn Alison presented the schools P.E. Teacher Blake Raymond, with a certificate to mark the good deeds that the students of Devizes School achieved.


Alison also went on to say the following,

“The funds we raise in north Wiltshire group go to support local families affected by MND and this year to date we have given £12,634 in grants for stairlifts, specialist equipment, assistance with home adaptations all designed to help people live at home and with dignity.


“We have also given grants for quality of life for short holidays to give carers and family members a break from the stresses and strains that this disease brings.


“The donation of £929.80 from the school, goes very nearly to the cost of us providing a stair lift for a family and in this year we have funded eight installations.”
