Post by George Kambouris, Carindale resident and owner of Living on Wheels. We wrote about George earlier this year.
I’m really keen to pass on the experiences and knowledge I have obtained and to help children, not only with everyday tasks, but also about fun, games and sport in wheelchairs.
Come along for an intro to “Living On Wheels” – a showcase of what my new program will be offering. It’s a free event for the whole community. Please let as many people know as possible, especially kids in wheelchairs and their families and friends!
