Starburst Go Tricycle-tastic for Martha

The local Starburst charity ( have very kindly provided Martha with a new tricycle to replace her old one that she has now grown out of.

Martha trying her new tyicycle for the first time
As Martha can't stand or walk independently, a tricycle is the only real way for Martha to exercise (she is pushed along with a guide pole which also steers the trike) with her legs going round on the peddles. A tricycle also helps Martha with her hip problems by exercising her hip joints in a controlled way - hopefully strengthening her joints. Martha loves being out and about on her tricycle.
