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

Josephine had 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
