Former Orange Bikes marketing guy Michael Bonney suffered a life changing bike crash in March 2013 that left him paralysed from the neck down. It’s a measure of his determination that he’s now able to get out on some of the trails he once rode on a bike in his purpose built motorised BOMA wheelchair made for him by Molten Rock.
Now Molten Rock have released a one-of-a-kind, art calendar for 2016. The Milton Keynes-based all-terrain mobility solutions manufacturer designs, builds and markets BOMA7, an all-terrain wheelchair with off-road capability. Over the years, BOMA7 has transformed lives of many exceptional people with varying degrees of disabilities and enabled them to get back outdoors despite limited mobility.
“Every disability is different and every client has a unique story. One thing they have in common is their love of the great outdoors and the determination to live a full life regardless. I am very proud that our product made such a difference,” – says Chris Swift, Commercial Director of Molten Rock Equipment Ltd, creator of the BOMA7 and a full-time wheelchair user himself. – “We have established Molten Rock Foundation as a not for profit company to give something back. We plan the calendar as our first of many projects to share, celebrate and inspire”. Molten rock Equipment Ltd has funded all origination costs so that all profits from calendar sales can be distributed by the Foundation.
The calendar, designed by multi-talented journalist, artist and model Rachael Clegg is intended to be deep, thought-provoking and visually impressive. Each page is dedicated to a user who nominates one charity.
“We have been looking for a way to give back to many charities that helped our clients throughout the years. This uniquely creative, inspiring project is a perfect fit. In our business, we do not use order numbers to identify our BOMA7 chairs. We refer to them by name. Not many businesses can say that. This calendar is personable, engaging and quirky and a great way to thank our clients and the wonderful charities”, – said Julia Cox, the managing director of Molten Rock.
The calendar is available from www.moltenrockfoundation.org.uk for just £15 including UK postage. All profits will be equally split between the charities chosen by those featured.
