Hi-Fi Pig is raising £3,000 to help fund a new wheelchair for Ricky Sterling - Please contribute
Hifi Pig heard about a young guy and audiophile in the USA, Ricky Sterling. Ricky's story really touched us. This young man has been a paraplegic nearly his whole life after falling from a 6th-floor window when he was just 2 years old. Since 2009, Ricky's insurance have only been able to supply him with a very non-manoeuvrable, hospital type wheelchair that is not suited to his needs, this makes his life uncomfortable and difficult to say the least. Add to that the fact that the tyres are now coming off his chair and you can understand how this is impacting on Ricky's life.
We are aiming to raise £3000 to go towards his new chair, which will cost 4500 US$. To do this we are having a raffle!
We are having new prizes donated all the time, will keep adding to this list, the prizes (which will be drawn in the following order) are:
