A Feniton woman has benefited from the Honiton-based Joe Gilson Mobility Scheme.

Helen Maddock was presented with a new Mobility scooter by Carol Gilson, founder of the scheme.

Carol said she was ‘delighted’ to provide Helen with the scooter, as it gave her an alternative way to get about without using a wheelchair.

The scooter was the 155th mobility aid the scheme has donated to date.

Carol is still looking for donations of electric wheelchairs in a good condition.
