UK Council Install Disabled Swing in Local Park

By Victoria on June 12, 2017 in Positive News

In the UK, the South Lanarkshire Council built a park near two eight-year old twins Naomi and Isaac Gwynne’s home. However Naomi was sad to realise her twin brother wouldn’t be able to use the new swings there. Both twins have autism, but Isaac also has visual impairment due to a brain tumour and severe learning difficulties, which means he cannot hold on to a normal swing.

But on realizing this Naomi took things into her own hands and wanted to get a suitable swing put in place for her brother. She wrote to her local council on his behalf, accusing them of “forgetting” her brother.

Their mum Miriam Gwynne shared the letter on Twitter, which partly read: “I like the new park but please could you make a disabled swing for it?”

Naomi’s plea spread across the internet, and soon after a new swing was installed for Isaac. Naomi is now delighted for her brother.
