Holiday joy for Silsden teenager Nathan Cubitt
8:00am Sunday 20th October 2013 in News
A Silsden teenager is looking forward to a dream family holiday to America.
Eighteen-year-old Nathan Cubitt is hoping to visit Disney World with his family, but the plans were thrown into doubt when he struggled to get insurance.
A company has now come forward with a quote.
His mum, Sue, said: “It’s a huge weight off my shoulders. We’d been trying for months to get this by trawling through a list of companies.
“Nothing fazes Nathan, but I know he’s very, very chuffed. All I wanted to do was make sure he was covered just in case anything happened. Nothing should stop us now!”
The teenager broke his neck in a rugby scrum two years ago and uses a motorised wheelchair to get around.
