Snappi size 1 buggy accessories...

TLM Community member Posts: 1 Listener
Hi all! My name's Tina and very recently my 4 yr old daughter received a Snappi size 1 buggy from NHS wheelchair service. It's great but I'm really struggling to find a sunshade/rain cover for it (still can't believe it doesn't come with one!) If anyone could give my advice or point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it.
Thank you in advance 😊

    Hi @TLM - & welcome to the community. This may not be helpful, but there are some 'universal' rain covers that may fit; you would have to check/enquire about their measurements.
    There's also Freecycle, Gumtree or your local Facebook community where you might find the right raincover.

    We wish you luck. You can get charity funding for the canopy and cover. We had the Snazzi and it was quoted at over £300 by the suppliers... Our OT fortunately knew of a charity they could contact on our behalf and we got them fairly quickly. 
    You do need both though as the rain cover is shaped to include.
    I can't remember exactly but I think the rain cover is interchangeable between the chair styles so as your daughter grows you shouldn't need to get another cover. *Not 💯 on the sun canopy though. My son's canopy could be transferred between the last couple of chairs but he had the same style just bigger.
