MIDWEEK Herald editor Belinda Bennett is pictured thanking Dave Hardy, of Honiton, for donating a mobility scooter to a reader.

Mr Hardy personally delivered the scooter to the woman, who suffers from Parkinson's disease, this afternoon (Thursday, October 8).

He gave the woman a demonstration of how the scooter works and presented her with documentation, including a user manual and service history.

Mr Hardy, who has undergone operations on his back, no longer needs the scooter because he has a new, larger one.
