Influencer gives back to charity with mobility aid collab

Words by Abi Scaife

Walking on Sunshine is a fun new collaboration between an influencer and mobility aid brand ‘Cool Crutches’.

Tell me more!

Nicky Newman, an influencer with Stage 4 Breast Cancer who is using her platform to raise awareness, has launched a partnership with Cool Crutches.

Cool Crutches are a mother-daughter-owned brand that - just like the name on the tin - creates fun, practical and comfortable mobility aids, like crutches and walking sticks. The company came about after basic crutches caused daughter Amelia further pain, which delayed her time-sensitive recovery.

What’s the collab?

A video of Nicky using her mobility aids to open her curtains in the morning caught the attention of Cool Crutches founder Amelia, who intended to provide her with a better, more comfortable alternative. 

Fast forward and the two have come up with an amazing collab together, with 15% of the profits going to The Willow Foundation -  a charity that helps seriously ill young adults make great memories.

The collab is available on the Cool Crutches website - in both walking stick and crutch form!
