New lease of life for ME sufferer Becky Keast.

A woman who suffers from chronic fatigue syndrome has been given new scooter from a Honiton-based scheme.

Becky Keast, 41, from Beacon Heath, suffers from ME and needed a scooter to make life easier for herself.

Becky’s son Matthew received the new vehicle on her behalf.

Carol Gilson, founder of the Joe Gilson Mobility Scheme - which provided Becky with her new scooter - delivered it to her. Becky said the donation would ‘change her life style’ and she was very grateful for the machine.

An electric wheelchair, donated by Michael Cherring, on behalf of his late wife Silvia, has also been given to a woman who suffers from neurological condition MS.

The woman, based in Bristol, has expressed her thanks to Mr Cherring as the scooter will help her live her life more easily.
