Concern Wadebridge is launching a trial service just before Christmas to help people get out and about around the town. Access Wadebridge is being set up to help those with mobility problems borrow a mobility scooter from The Betjeman Centre. At present two scooters are available and one wheelchair to help people enjoy the Christmas spirit in the town.
Andy Lyle Manager of Concern Wadebridge said “if this trial is successful we will hopefully have more scooters and wheelchairs for people to borrow, helping them to enjoy the town and Camel Estuary. Being able to get out and about makes such a difference to people’s well-being and we hope people from outlying areas will once again be able to enjoy Wadebridge this Christmas by using a scooter”.
Also as part of Access Wadebridge the charity is hoping to start a volunteer car service in the spring, helping people to be able to access medical and social appointments.
If anyone is interested in either of the projects, or volunteering to help, please call in and see Andy at The Betjeman Centre or phone him on 01208 812392.
