Wetherby District Lions had surplus wheelchairs available from their short term community loan scheme. They were advertised on their social media platforms and it was seen by Steve. He commented, "I got in touch with Wetherby Lions about taking one, by the next day me and my mother had tested one of the large wheeled chairs and decided to take it. For me it was an absolute bargain as it was free of charge, however I gave a donation to them towards their annual servicing costs. The new wheelchair has made it 10 times easier already for my mother to get around and it will benefit towards her getting out more often. We can't thank the Wetherby Lions enough for the services they provide and we appreciate everything they do for us in the community and especially now for my mother with her brand new wheels ! Many thanks".
