Spina Bifida Awareness Week 2021 - Dean's Story

17th October 2021


Dean's Story...

"Shine was able to offer me support and helped me get grant donations."

I’m 41 and have been living with spina bifida since birth.  

My home had a border with hedges and small trees, and this was very difficult for me to manage. As I couldn’t trim the hedges and trees myself because I’m a wheelchair user I either had to rely on family or friends or pay a contractor to do it.

Shine was able to offer me support and helped me get grant donations so I could get the hedges and trees removed and replaced with secured fencing. This meant easy upkeep to manage for me with the new fencing.
