Sharmeen finds freedom on wheels

SHARMEEN Sandhu’s parents have never seen her smile bigger or brighter then the moment she first laid eyes on her brand new bike.

The 5½-year-old, who has cerebral palsy, has been “desperate” to get her own bike after her twin sister received one earlier in the year.

But her mother Amna Hafeez said, it wasn’t as easy as purchasing one “from Kmart”.
