Lighthouse Toys owner raising funds for new wheelchair

Published on: 21st August 2018

Sam Broad is aiming to regain some freedom and assist in the running of her toy shop.

Lighthouse Toys opened fourteen years ago in Cambridge, run by husband and wife team Tim and Sam Broad. Four years ago, Sam became ill, and Tim has been running the shop with the help of her parents ever since. Sam can only visit the store occasionally, when she is well enough, although she has continued to do the toy buying from home, via email and phone.

Sam’s current chair doesn’t support her well and is difficult for Tim to push. This means that trips out of the house are a struggle. Sam is hoping to raise funds for a specialist wheelchair, which would give her back some freedom and hopefully enable her to take a more active role in the business again. She would love to be able to help Tim more with the shop and go out for day trips, as well as spend time with her children.

Members of the toy trade, well know for its generosity and support, are able to help Sam and Tim out by visiting Sam’s GoFundMe campaign, here.

Any support would mean a lot to the couple, and every small donation will help.
