Young designer's 'life-changing' Scallop seat helps Swansea girl with cerebral palsy

A seven-year-old girl is looking forward to a very special Christmas this year - thanks to the clever creation of one young graduate.

Evie Hopkins, from Swansea, has cerebral palsy, which affects all four of her limbs as well as her balance and mobility.

She can't sit unaided without toppling over, which once made simple pleasures like wrapping Christmas presents, a day out or even eating a meal at the table a struggle.

But thanks to a specially designed seat known as the Scallop, Evie is now able to join in with her family and friends.

"I really can't overestimate the difference it's made. It's just been an absolute life-changer for her. Just the smallest things in life, it's just made it that much easier. And you wouldn't believe the difference. It's brought her confidence, she's more engaged with us as a family and we're doing a lot more as a family than previously we would have been able to do. So it really has made such a positive impact on her life."

– Jason Hopkins, Evie's father
