The Disability Trading Company (DTC), the mobility arm of the Warrington Disability Partnership (WDP), is looking to drive scooter safety among local residents by holding a Scoota-Safe Day tomorrow.

The social enterprise will be hosting a scooter training track and will be offering demonstration vehicles featuring some of the latest WAV adaptations including hand controls, hoists, swivel seats and top box storage systems.

It will also be used as an opportunity for the DTC to display its range of manual and powered wheelchairs and mobility scooters.

The WDP and DTC’s staff will also be imparting advice and servicing and repairs in addition to a free pre-Christmas safety check on mobility equipment.

Dave Thompson MBE DL chief officer at WDP told Warrington Worldwide: “Our Scoota-Safe Day events offer a unique opportunity for anyone to try a mobility scooter from our Shopmobility service, or try one of the wide range of manual and powered wheelchair and mobility scooters available from our DTC shops”.

“Visitors can also pick up information about the latest vehicle adaptations from our partners at Warrington based BAS NW.”
