Donation helps Shopmobility boost scooter portfolio


A Shopmobility service in Lochaber, Scotland, has expanded its fleet of mobility scooters thanks to a donation from the Gordon and Ena Baxter foundation.

The service has been able to purchase a new Vapor X75 scooter from a mobility provider, which will help keep more residents mobile.

The Vapor X75 scooter was specified to cope with the tough terrains of the Lochaber area.

It incorporates a 360 degree swivel design for easy access and also contains large pneumatic tyres and suspension.

Kay Jackson, foundation manager of The Gordon and Ena Baxter Foundation, told the Press and Journal: “It can be very challenging for those less able to get out and about in their local area.

“Trustees were keen to support this group which has a very pro-active attitude towards assisting local residents and visitors to the area.  It’s a great community initiative.”

Julie Wilema, project co-ordinator of Shopmobility Lochaber, said: “We are very grateful to The Gordon and Ena Baxter Foundation for their support, this scooter will make so many more areas accessible to our users.”
