Westmeath Mum Appealing For Help To Get Specialised Bike For Son With Autism

She says he's no longer use a buggy when the family goes for walks. 

A Westmeath mother is asking her local community to help raise funds for a special bike for her child, who has autism. 

Janka Topiarzova Kovacikova has set up a GoFundMe page, as her eight year old son will no longer use a buggy when the family goes for walks. 

She says they have looked at cheaper alternatives but they don't suit Lucas as he has poor concentration. 

Over €1,000 has been raised in the last 24 hours.
