Thanks to your support

Colour Sergeant Ronnie Docherty lives in Clydebank with his wife Linda, 19-year-old daughter Kerry and son Ross, 16. Ronnie joined the Territorial Army 28 years ago and is still serving as a reservist with 6 SCOTS. When Ross was 18 months old he was diagnosed with a rare disorder called Langerhans cell histiocytosis.

Up until the age of 12 Ross was a very active boy, but for the past year and a half he has needed a wheelchair. Ross was using a wheelchair which was far too heavy and difficult to use, especially at school. Ronnie and Linda turned to Poppyscotland for help and, thanks to supporters like you, we were able to help fund a lightweight sports wheelchair for Ross.

Ronnie said: “The new wheelchair means Ross is able to be much more independent. It has made a difference to our life as a family, too. It is much easier to do things together now. I am so grateful to Poppyscotland and their supporters. The wheelchair has given Ross freedom.”
