Justin Langer, Patron of Make a Difference WA Foundation (MAD) proudly presented the keys to a modified vehicle to young Lauren and Holly Parker and their family  from Bindoon on Monday 8 July 2013. The presentation was kindly conducted at The WACA – Home of the WA State Cricket Association and the Western Warriors .

The Parker family have three children, two who live with multi physical disabilities. Young Lauren 6 and Holly 4 have leukodystrophy, autism and epilepsy. The family has struggled with an old unreliable sedan which has now become too small to transport all the family + wheelchairs. As Lauren and Holly have regular trips to see specialists and ongoing therapy, they must arrange separate appointments as there is not enough room in their car. Make a Difference WA Foundation was more than happy to fund a specially modified vehicle for the family giving them an improved quality of life but more importantly a fully modified and reliable vehicle to assist them to transport young Lauren and Holly together safely and in comfort.

The Foundation would like to extend our thanks and appreciation to Thrifty Car and Truck Rental; Independent Living Centre of WA: TL Engineering; Kevrek Australia; IC Frith & Associates WA and The WACA for all their valued support and friendship of this very deserving charity project.

Make a Difference WA Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation that raises significant funds through various events to ‘make a difference’ to the lives of those in necessitous circumstances, thereby improving the overall quality of life across various Western Australian communities. This includes one of the Foundation’s charity projects for 2013 to fund a specially modified vehicle for the Parker family
