One of the children on the ice was six year old Lachie, who has severe quadriplegic cerebral palsy and is fully dependant on his parents/ carers for all aspects of his care. This was on his family’s ‘Wish List’.

Lachie took to the ice in the comfort of his specialised wheelchair with the help of high level skaters from Logistics Events Australia.

He was also joined by five year old Austin, nine year old Archie and eleven year old Hayley in wheelchairs on the ice rink.

Janette Connolly, CEO of Variety, the children’s charity, said the ‘Wheels On Ice’ event was a very special experience for the children and their families and created some memorable moments for all involved.
