Crawley-based retailer Wings Mobility has stressed running a business is “not all about sales” after coming to the aid of an elderly gentleman who had £1,000 in cash stolen by thieves in his home.
The dealer gifted 91-year-old Terry Lowes with a new mobility scooter after it emerged he had been saving the cash to buy a scooter of his own.
Owner of Wings Mobility, Ajmer Phull, read the theft story on a local newspaper’s website and immediately got in touch.
The newspaper helped to contact Mr Lowes who was then prescribed a Sterling Sapphire 2 which will help him to be more independent and move around. The scooter has a max speed of 6.4kph and can travel up to 19 miles on a single charge.
Mr Phull said that as a company, Wings Mobility is committed to feeding back into the local community.
“We really do feel that a good company is a caring company. We also support local causes like St Catherine’s Hospice and the Springboard project which support disabled children and their families. These are all local causes.”
Mr Lowes will be granted his scooter in a couple of weeks and will also be provided with three months free insurance and a shopping bag courtesy of Wings Mobility.
The business offers three months free insurance to all customers buying a new mobility scooter.
