A care home group’s charitable foundation has donated money to a Shopmobility service in Luton to support more people in the area to stay mobile.
Local care home Chorleywood Beaumont Care Home delivered a £1,000 cheque on behalf of Barchester Healthcare’s Charitable Foundation.
Luton Shopmobility is a mobility equipment hire service that loans wheelchairs and mobility scooters to elderly residents.
Its vice-chair, Sue Bolton, and treasurer, Dixie Kightley, received a tour of the care home when the cheque was handed over.
The money will be used to maintain operations and to repair and replace mobility equipment.
Harrold Tasker, the homes’ resident ambassador, told MyLocalNews: “I was very pleased to be able to present to Luton Shopmobility with a cheque for £1,000 from Barchester Charitable Foundation as I know the money is going towards a good cause.
!Mobility equipment can be expensive so it is great Barchester’s charity is able to support local people with disabilities, because everyone deserves to live well.”
Wayne Hughes, senior general manager at Chorleywood Beaumont, told the news service: “We are always keen to show as much support as we can to local charities, and Barchester’s Charitable Foundation has made a big difference to many people all over the country improving lives one grant at a time.”
