This year I will… learn how to transfer a cup of tea in my wheelchair. 

George said: ‘Normally I carry a cup of tea in between my legs, which risks burning me and sometimes is spills. Or I just have to stay still and drink it where I am. So I would like to learn to carry it more safely. In the past I’ve been to wheelchair skills training with Whizz-Kidz, where I have learnt to use my brakes properly, transfer from my chair and go up and down kerbs, all of these skills have given my more control, more independence and opportunities to be spontaneous. This year I want to keep developing skills.’
