In August 2018, our graphic designer, who is a popular and fun-loving member of the Ultraframe marketing team, was involved in a tragic accident while enjoying one of the many sports that she loves – paragliding.
After landing safely following a tandem dive with her partner on Bowland Fell, a freak gust of wind carried her over 200m along the ground and through a stone wall. She was airlifted to hospital by rescue teams who attended from Scotland, but despite their best efforts, her injuries were found to be life-changing and sadly, she is now paralysed from the waist down due to her severe back injuries.
Prior to her accident, she was a very active person and enjoyed walking, hiking, festivals and many extreme sports, including paragliding, so this prognosis is especially devastating. She is currently undergoing intensive rehabilitation at a centre in Southport and has amazed her family and friends with her courage and positive attitude.
As an adventurer, the quality of wheelchair she uses will have a huge impact on her ability to be active and do the things she loves. We would love to be able to raise the money to buy this life-changing equipment for our colleague and friend, and hope to achieve this from the sales of an Ultraframe charity calendar, based on film/conservatory puns. The calendar features many familiar Ultraframe faces recreating iconic films – with a conservatory twist!
The whole of Ultraframe is pulling together to raise these vital funds. We need the help of our industry friends to reach our target for this popular lady who is sorely missed in the Ultraframe marketing office.
So if you’d like to meet the stars of Edwardian Scissorhands, Bar Wars and A Clockwork Orangery, make a minimum donation of £5 and we will send you a copy!
