I am writing to see if you may be able to assist The Rotary Club of Norwest Sunrise in raising funds to support the purchase of a new wheelchair for Amruta Bhanushali. Amruta is almost 11 years old and attends the Hills School in Sydney. She was born with a number of chronic medical conditions that makes life more challenging for her but she makes the most of every day and brings smiles to the faces of all the people she meets. Amruta loves listening to pop music and getting out and about in the fresh air. On doctors advice, she urgently requires a better wheelchair to prevent her scoliosis worsening.The chair will cost in the order of $16,000 providing it is purchased before the end of financial year.

We have raised $2,200 towards the chair and have three pledges of $400 each, totalling $3,400, so we are 20% of the way there.

Our Rotary Club of Norwest Sunrise is coordinating the fundraising efforts and we are seeking 32 big hearted supporters to each purchase a spoke at $400 each to complete the fundraising drive.

Spokes (Special Persons Of Kindness and Empathy) will be recognised on the fundraising page at http://bit.ly/2Ioibhy

Due to Amruta’s complex medical needs she requires a customised seating system to meet all her needs, keep her comfortable and able to participate in the school environment. Due to the family’s current visa status Amruta is not eligible for funding through the National Disability Insurance Agency. Further details can be provided if your club is interested in supporting Amruta.


Kind regards,
