Maldon: You can give Alfie a lift with a click of a mouse
3:00pm Saturday 12th October 2013 in Local News
Alfie needs a lift – and the community can help.
Six-year-old Alfie Gosling, a pupil at Maldon Primary School, was born with spina bifida and hydrocephalus.
The active youngster does not let it stop him, but he needs two or three adults to lift his wheelchair into his school library, which is based in a demountable building.
A very long ramp would be needed to create a safe incline so the school hopes to buy a lift instead, costing about £5,000.
Alfie's lift is one of four good causes in the Essex Coast area shortlisted for the Lloyds Bank Community Fund.
The two that receive the most public votes will receive £3,000 each.
