Electric Mobility was proud and honoured to support The British Limbless Ex-Service Men’s Association (BLESMA) during the 101st anniversary Cenotaph Parade in London on Remembrance Sunday 2019.
In doing so, it provided Rascal 338 S and Rascal 388 XL Mobility Scooters for the limbless Veterans to ensure they could partake in the parade with ease.
Dave Pierce, Electric Mobility’s warehouse manager, dedicates his own time to coordinate the 20+ Mobility Scooters and deliver them to Horse Guards Parade for use as part of the partnership with BLESMA for Sundays’ Remembrance Parade.
This year Britain commemorated 101 years since the end of hostilities in the First World War and Electric Mobility celebrated their 16th year working alongside the organisation.
BLESMA, which is the only national Armed Forces Charity that supports limbless veterans who have lost limbs, or lost the use of limbs or eyes for the duration of their lives by providing rehabilitation activities and welfare support also celebrated their 101st year of service.
As with most years, some 40 BLESMA Members took part in this years’ particularly poignant service.
This year consisted of 23 Members on Mobility Scooters, along with the walking wounded, widows and carers behind them.
Elaine Leighton, marketing and communications manager at Electric Mobility, commented: “We are strongly committed to supporting this great Veteran Charity and will continue to provide Mobility Scooters to give the veterans the opportunity to fully take part in the parade to pay their respects to those that are lost but not forgotten.”
Adding: “Electric Mobility as a company is extremely passionate about aiding serving and ex-military personnel with this important event in the calendar, highlighting just one example of how our products really can improve the lives of heroes for the better by enabling them to remain independent.”
