Supporting the Big Brother Trike Challenge

Mobility Aids Centre and Big Brother

During an unusual phone call via our website, Anna from Channel 5’s Big Brothers task team enquired for our help. Her request was for The Mobility Aids Centre to supply Big Brother with a child’s trike that could be ridden by an adult! The Theraplay Imp Tricycle fitted the bill perfectly and on Day 50 during the Party Animals, Childrens Party task the housemates had to negotiate a course whilst pedalling the Theraplay Imp trike.

Luckily we had an appointment booked in Stanmore Hospital that day to deliver a wheelchair, and with Elstree Studios and the Big Brother village just around the corner we met with the team to handover the trike. Although this particular tricycle is designed for disabled children between the ages of 3 to 5 years old, its solid build and excellent stability made it a worthy contended for the task ahead. Chatting with Anna she told me that Big Brother would need to test the trike before allowing the housemates to use it, but from the pictures you can see it stood up to the job admirably.
