Ableworld’s Newark store has supported the Real Men Talk charity by aiding a fundraising drive to give one of its members a new mobility scooter.
Real Men Talk is a charity set up by a group of friends who have experienced mental health issues. Their aim is to ‘show others it’s good to talk and help others along the way’.
They came across a gentleman called Ryan, who suffers with a nerve tissue complaint which has made his mobility very limited.
Because of this, RMT decided they wanted to surprise Ryan with a new mobility scooter from Ableworld.
RMT began fundraising straight away and overall, they raised £1,000, with Ableworld pledging 20% extra to their total so that it reached £1,200.
Members of RMT came into the store with Ryan so they could surprise him and he chose the Sapphire 2 mobility scooter.
Ableworld store manager Georgie said: “At one point all four of the men were in tears, it was very humbling to see and I loved working with Real Men Talk to make this happen.”
