At times heart rending but always rewarding to provide mobility ! Kudos to our team Dave Woodhouse, Francis Callard, Ansie Hibberd, Laszlo and Lyn Somody who worked very hard on the day to assist the hand over as people were brought by bus to receive their wheelchairs.
This project which started in 1992, has now handed out over 28000 wheelchairs.
