Helping Hand in The Community

A WADEBRIDGE resident has been given a new lifeline thanks to Cornish charities and businesses working together.

Brenda, who is a regular visitor to the Concern Wadebridge’s community hub in Southern Way, needed a new three-wheeled walker.

The 80-year-old, who suffers from Parkinson’s, needs the aid to help her walk safely so Concern Wadebridge manager Andy Lyle made some phone calls and thanks to a grant from Cornwall Community Foundation was able to purchase one for her.

Andy said: “Brenda is a regular at the centre and we see first-hand what a difference the walker makes to her. Thanks to the Cornwall Community Foundation grant and help of Unique Mobility in Launceston who supplied the walker.”

Mrs Thould said: “I am absolutely delighted with my new walker. It makes such a difference to my everyday life. I cannot thank Concern Wadebridge enough for their ongoing support.”
