Free short-term wheelchair loan in Shevington

If you have occasions when using a wheelchair would help you or a relative make the most of the village, here’s a solution.
Greater Manchester’s ‘Age Friendly Neighbourhood’ project enabled Shevington Community Association to buy two transit wheelchairs which can be borrowed free of charge. These I-Lite chairs are lightweight but strong; safe for users up to 18stone; ideal to be pushed from car park to cafe or to a local appointment; they fold and can go in a car boot.
It is important to note that they are for short term use only and borrowed at the users’ own risk.
If you have an occasion when this would be useful to you, please contact
Sheila Milnes 01257 253735 / 07510 55 67 55 or Marlaine Whitham 07806938114 / 01257 253055 or one of the stewards at Shevington Methodist Church.
