Rosie’s Powerchair Football dream comes true!

Celebrating Rosie’s Achievement

Earlier this we we posted about Rosie, who was trying to raise money for a new powerchair, enabling her to play at higher levels of powerchair football. We are so pleased Rosie was able to raise the money she needed to and had her call up to be part of the England Team!

Rosie got her call up on Monday, and has to spend a weekend in August at a training camp with the rest of the national team.

The news comes following a league and cup double with her London-based team, Aspire PFC, bringing home both the Premiership and FA Cup this season before heading to the Champions League in October.

At the moment Rosie is having to increase her training from the two hours a week she does at Watford with her team, to another six hours a week independently. However, it is really hard to find affordable space. It will only be Rosie training, and a hall at the UEA can cost between £50 and £100 for an hour, sadly Rosie just can’t afford that.

If the training camp, held on August 12 and 13 in Burton-on-Trent, is successful, Rosie could be on her way to America next year for the World Cup.

She got onto the radar of the England squad after being head-hunted by their scouts during a national weekend in Nottingham.

“I was ecstatic, and just couldn’t believe it,” she said. “I am now the only girl who has been picked for this year’s squad.”

“Without the new chair I wouldn’t have got the call-up,” she said. “It is only that I now have the skill and the equipment that I am able to fulfil my dreams.

At present America are the holders of the World Cup but England are second, so it shouldn’t be too difficult to take it from them. Best of luck Rosie, we will be looking out for some great results!

A very pleasant place to go for your mobility equipment. Staff are very knowledgeable and very helpful.

I've used them for several years now and they have always accommodated all my disability needs.

Paul Green

I feel I must write and say a huge thank you for the service my wife and I received last week when we came to look at new scooters.

We were both very pleased with how comfortable and reliable they are and were pleasantly surprised at the professional approach we received from Grant.

I recently needed to purchase a recliner chair for my mother, I contacted East Coast Mobility having dealt with them before, our needs were sorted over the phone, efficiently, with compassion and delivered within 48 hours.

Despite my mother not keen on a recliner chair she absolutely loves it!

Shane Pettingill

Excellent service! We're so glad we used East Coast Mobility for my parent's Stairlift.

Scott came round to assess our requirements - very professional and polite. A time slot was proposed that suited everyone and a week later installation was completed in just over 2 hours.

A brilliant solid stairlift, which is speedy, a fraction of the cost of some leading manufacturers and comes with a 12 month warranty.

We can't fault these guys - really chuffed!

Lynda

It all worked out well in the end.
Easy Access Ramp is pucker!

Love Lynda

We are delighted to recommend the Tandem Mobility Scooter which we have had for two years. It has been great to travel in, and has meant my wife and I could go out together.

Having bought the Canopy as well means the Tandem is an all weather commodity, so we get all year round enjoyment from it.

Service and care from East Coast Mobility is excellent.

Thank you for adding colour to our lives!

Mr Blossfeldt

Excellent workmanship and finish. Accessible shower solution delivered to a high standard.

Thanks very much!

Malcolm Lyell

Excellent service. We needed an engineer late in afternoon to fix my father's Stairlift as he could not have got to toilet or bed that night. They left the workshop and attended within 30 mins - fault fixed!

Very helpful and knowledgeable.

Tina Roslyn

Excellent customer service and prompt delivery.

Would highly recommend.
