CHARITIES that have ‘wheels-related’ projects are being urged to apply for a share of £50,000 from accident management specialist Easi-Drive.
Over the past five years the Manchester-based company has helped many projects including funding an international wheelchair ballroom competition in Manchester, supporting a Sale-based Powerchair football club, and helping a number of charities keep their community vehicles on the road.
Stevenage Shopmobility is the latest charity to benefit with £1,000 donated towards buying new equipment.
Gerald Dunston, from Stevenage Shopmobility, said: “Our customers come to us with a range of mobility problems resulting from accident, illness or age and feedback tells us our equipment is a godsend for helping them maintain their independence.
“This donation will help us to continue providing our service and making a difference to the lives of our customers.”
Easi-Drive director Simon Bellamy said: “Donation requests can be for as little as a hundred pounds, right through to a few thousand, as long as the money goes towards a wheel-related charity that will make a difference.”
Sue Souter, director at Souters PR, which is said: “This a scheme unique to Easi-Drive which does great work and underpins what the firm is all about.”
