Donations Purchase Equipment for the Mobility Service

Unity proudly announce the delivery of four new pieces of equipment for their Mobility service based at the Bus Station, Andover.  The centrally based organisation provides a range of equipment for Shop-mobility customers but also offers the opportunity to hire equipment for short periods for those who may have been injured or are going away and need a scooter or a wheelchair for a matter of days or weeks.

The shiny new equipment includes a state-of-the-art powered wheelchair, three-wheel powered chair, wheelchair and portable wheelchair was supplied by A to B Mobility who service equipment for Unity as well as a wide number of other customers across the area.

Terry Bishop, Chief Executive said “We are delighted to be able to use donations received to purchase this new equipment which has given us the opportunity to clear out old stock which has been proving difficult to fix.  These items enable us to provide the best possible service to our customers and for those thinking about hiring equipment for short term reasons.”

An awareness raising campaign to inform health professionals about the short-term hire services is due to be launched in the next few weeks and Unity Mobility are also planning an open morning on Wednesday 10th July to give people an non-obligatory opportunity to view equipment, try the equipment for themselves, ask questions or receive low key training if people need a refresher or lack confidence in using motorised scooters.
