by | Mar 25, 2022

“It is our partners at Redsbaby that have allowed us to extend the smooth ride for families…to ease the travel for our [unwell] little passengers with the donation of their SKIP² Strollers… This may seem a simple gesture… but it is the small, unspoken details that genuinely ease the burden and make all the difference””

How our SKIP² Strollers have supported these families in need with their travel

SKIP² Strollers and Little Wings

Last year, we gifted many SKIP² Strollers to Little Wings Australia to help make these journeys more comfortable and accessible for the families travelling for treatment.

“Whilst we are best known for our air and ground transport, it is our partners at Redsbaby that have allowed us to extend the smooth ride for families, providing their top of the range strollers to ease the travel for our little passengers as they move through the hospital corridors during their stay.

This may seem a simple gesture, but for our families, it is the small, unspoken details that genuinely ease the burden and make all the difference. Offering comfort, safety and ease for the duration of their stay… sometimes this will be overnight, and for others, the weeks slowly turn into months.” – Little Wings Australia.

Our SKIP² Strollers are easy to lift, carry and store and navigates all spaces with eases and thus making them the ideal companion for these families’ travel. We are so proud to be able to support Little Wings Australia.
