Stone Lions Mobility Scheme celebrates three decades providing scooters

Scenes At HMP Bedford After Inmates Led 200-strong Riot

The Stone Lions Club Mobility Scheme has now been operating for 30 years, providing mobility scooters to local residents to keep them mobile.

The scheme started when the community group was approached by a local man in Stone, Staffordshire, who had mobility issues and so the group helped him source and buy a scooter.

Now the scheme has helped more than 150 local residents stay mobile and the group has a fleet of more than 75 scooters it lends.

Many of the mobility scooters have been donated by members of the public or are purchased locally.

Mobility dealer, Disable Aids, based in Cannock, assists the Stone Lions Mobility Scheme by servicing and repairing the scooter fleet.

As part of its celebrations, the club invited guests to have tea and cake with members of the club and its supporters.

It was announced that Mike Ward MBE, who organises and administrates the mobility scheme, will be stepping down from his role at mobility coordinator.

He has decided to hand over the reins of the scheme and he was thanked by the Stone Lions Club for his work over the last 30 years.
