A wheelchair service for ex-service personnel in the North-east has been given a boost.
Legion Scotland’s Banchory branch committee member Chris Collins has donated a van for use by the organisation’s Wheelchair Fund in Aberdeen, Banff and Kincardine.
Chris, who runs the town’s Continental Cream shop, bought a new vehicle for the business, meaning his Fiat Doblo was surplus to requirements.
He told the Piper: “It has wheelchair and mobility scooter access, so I thought it would be ideal for the transport service the Legion provides in the area.
“I’m delighted to do anything that helps our ex-service people.”
The Wheelchair Fund’s area secretary and wheelchair officer Matt Fyfe was delighted to receive the donation.
He said: “It was very generous of Chris and it will be a great help to me.”
Matt has so far been using his car and a trailer to transport the equipment.
The fund has been running for more than 20 years and delivers electric wheelchairs and mobility scooters to ex-service personnel and collects them for repair.
