Yorkshire mobility retailer, Parkgate Mobility, has provided a number of Van Os Galaxy mobility scooters to a local RSPB nature reserve at a reduced price and with free servicing for three years.
The Old Moor reserve needed to replace its old scooters and received various donations meaning it could purchase the scooters which Parkgate reduced by £2,000.
“It is fantastic that the RSPB have asked us to provide a mobility solution to the elderly and less mobile visitors of the 250 acre nature reserve. The RSPB do some fantastic work and now with these new mobility scooters access to the reserve is secured for the foreseeable future,” a spokesperson for Parkgate said.
Meanwhile, Matthew Capper, senior site manager at RSPB Old Moor, told The Star:“We’re absolutely delighted with the new scooters, and we know our visitors will be as equally pleased, as they really do make such a difference. We’re very grateful for the generous support of all the organisations involved.”
Parkgate Mobility operates 14 retail outlets across Yorkshire and covers and extensive customer base.
It has branches in Barnsley, Batley, Beeston, Castleford, Clay Cross, Chesterfield, Derby, Doncaster, Handsworth, Hillsborough, Mansfield, Rotherham, Wakefield and Worksop.
Last year, the dealer was named as one of the UK’s leading Motability retailers after winning the large fleet category of the Motability Awards.
