Electric Mobility has said it will once again supply and coordinate the delivery of mobility scooters to a veteran group next year to help them pay their respects on the Remembrance Parade at the Cenotaph.

The company said it is “strongly committed” to supporting the cause and has been working with the same limbless veteran charity for the last 14 years.

Last month Electric Mobility supplied and coordinated the delivery of 20 of its scooters on Remembrance Sunday.

A number of Rascal 388 S’s and Rascal 388 Deluxe’s were provided so the British Limbless Ex-Service Men’s Association (BLESMA) could participate in the parade.

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.

This year Britain commemorated 99 years since the end of hostilities in the First World War and Electric Mobility celebrated its 14th year working alongside the organisation, BLESMA, who are the only national Armed Forces Charity that supports limbless veterans for the duration of their lives.

As with most years, some 40 BLESMA Members took part in this years’ service. This year consisted of 20 members on mobility scooters, along with the walking wounded, widows and carers behind them.

Elaine Leighton, marketing and communications manager, said: “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. “
