Shivam Number Plate

Shivam's special day at Porsche Centre Leicester


Last Friday saw local Porsche fan, Shivam Nathwani, visit our Centre for an exclusive behind the scenes tour of our workshop and showroom. Shivam browsed the full range and took a trip into the workshop and valet bay to see our team at work. After the tour, Shivam was given a special Porsche goody bag and a personalised number plate from our Parts department.

Shivam has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a severe muscle-wasting condition. His life thus far has been an endless cycle of operations, physiotherapy, medication and a 24-hour supply of oxygen. A fundraising campaign in conjunction with Rainbows Hospice has been launched to help Shivam raise money to get a new power-assisted wheelchair which will better suit his needs.

Shivam's overwhelming passion and enthusiasm for cars, in spite of the restrictions he faces in life; is truly inspiring. Although he may not be able to drive a car himself, the hope is that having the new power-assisted wheelchair will help him feel a little more like the racing driver he imagines being.

If you would like support Shivam's Wheelchair Fund (SWF) supported by Rainbows Children's Charity, you can donate online.
