Here Donna talks about going to school in a McLaren buggy.
TranscriptI got a McLaren buggy, one of them old blue buggies for disabled children, which I hated. And I was really embarrassed about it so I used to get my mum – where the school was, there as an alleyway, so I used to get Mum to hide the buggy there when she’d pick me up from school and then we would walk to the alleyway and then we’d go home the least popular way so there was less people.
