MANDURAH Baptist College student Josephine Byrne spent a day in a wheelchair and raised $820 for Wheelchair Sports WA Group.

Josephine raised the money by selling cupcakes, a school free-dress day and an online fundraising page.

She said she took part in the Wheelchair Challenge to raise funds for social, recreational and sporting opportunities for children and adults with a physical disability.

“Aside from raising funds for the charity, the challenge gave me a bit of first-hand experience of living with a disability and dealing with the challenging daily issues of accessibility,” she said
