We are now in the process of raising money to help 8yr old Lewis Lee Carpentier from Warrington, who desperately needs a new wheelchair!
A GRANDDAD hopes to raise more than £6,000 for a new wheelchair after seeing his grandson’s face ‘light up’ the first time he tried an off-road chair.
Les Carpentier, of Forge Road, Great Sankey, says he would sell his soul to buy one of the hi-tech chairs and has enlisted the help of Patti Bradshaw and children’s charity the Shannon Bradshaw Trust to help raise the cash.
His grandson Lewis Carpentier, who is a Warrington Wolves south stand season ticket holder, has cerebral palsy and cannot walk.
During a camping trip three weeks ago with the 10th Warrington Cubs, based at St Mary’s Church, Great Sankey, a Cub leader suggested he try an off-road wheelchair during the trip.
Les, aged 63, said: “It gave him so much independence as rather than having to ask to be pushed somewhere he could do it himself.
“The light that came into that little boy’s eyes was brilliant being able to go off with his friends.”
A friend suggested Les get in touch with Patti Bradshaw who was more than happy to help.
Les said: “Once you meet Lewis he’s infectious.
“He’s the best supporter Warrington has got and has been watching them since he was four.”
Alongside Shannon Bradshaw Trust events, Les also hopes to raise cash with a race night and by holding car boot sales.
Patti said: “Les told us the difference in Lewis was unbelievable when he was using the new wheelchair.
“It gives him independence but I think Lewis also thought the new chair would stop his granddad from hurting himself.
“We would really like to be able to get Lewis the chair by Christmas and I know everyone in Warrington will help.”

Ex-Atomic Kitten singing sensation Kerry Katona lends her popular personality and celebrity status to supporting the ‘Shannon Bradshaw Trust’ during a Ladies Night Charity Event in Warrington, Cheshire.
The previous winner of “I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here” has been a passionate Patron of the charity which was established by Alan and Patti Bradshaw who lost their daughter Shannon Bradshaw to the rare blood disorder, Aplastic Anaemia.
Kerry strongly supports the work of the charity from its inception due to her close links with the family as a local girl and a mother who keenly commits to the worthy cause.
She humbly stated her emotive reasons for her continual involvement that provides family support to those children with life-threatening diseases: “Being a mother myself, it’s heart-breaking…it’s something I could only ever imagine.”
The mother of four shares in the family’s dedication to the organization where she makes regular appearances to raise the profile: “Especially since I became a mother, I thought if the only thing I could ever do is to use my status to support the charity. It’s such a rare illness and the more people know about it, the better.”
Ladies Night was a sold out event with the proceeds going towards the Trust’s ventures such as ‘Caravan re-Treat’ which allows families confined to hospital wards the opportunity to have a break. Kerry has managed to maintain her presence throughout the years, adding her name to the charity.
The evening also included a lavish two-course meal and a raffle of Anne Summers titillating. Two other acts which lend their services to this and other charity events.UK HotBoys, formerly British Chippendales, featured their erotic brand of entertainment to a feverishly excited audience and Warrington up and coming recording artist Josh Mathur who is signed to Blue Vine Records serenaded the ladies for about 20 mins.
