Prestige Stairlifts ran a campaign on Facebook to find someone that would benefit from having a stairlift installed free of charge. Thanks to overwhelming support for a local young man Prestige Stairlifts heard the story about Alfie Peak. Alfie was sadly left brain damaged after a brutal attack in Bexhill on Sea.
Alfie, a young father, left hospital for the first time in seven months on his 26th birthday after the savage attack which left a trainer print on his face. Once we heard the story and read all the compelling nominations for Alfie Peak, we had to install a free stairlift to help improve his life. His partner, Tanya White, wrote “I am nominating Alfie Peak! He was sadly attacked in July 2013 and sustained a traumatic brain injury which left him with severe brain damage. Alfie uses a power wheel chair to get around but has never been able to go upstairs in the house and has not ever seen his children’s bedrooms. I know Alfie would greatly benefit from a stairlift”. I think this also shows that stairlifts are not just for the elderly… a common misconception.
Stairlift installed for Alfie Peak
Prestige Stairlifts has now installed a stairlift in his home. Alfie will now be able to go upstairs and put his children to bed. Until now upstairs has been out of bounds. We are really pleased to be able to give something back to the community and install this stairlift for Alfie Peak and his family. Read more about Alfie’s story
