Yorkshire retailer, MD Mobility, has allowed a local archery club to open itself up to more people with disabilities thanks to an equipment donation.

The Thirsk Bowmen, which already has a number of disabled members, put in a request to MD Mobility for a discount on a wheelchair to make itself even more inclusive.

But MD Mobility responded to club chairman Ken Billing’s request by offering the group a free wheelchair.

Mr Billings told The Northern Echo that it was a “nice surprise” to get help from the local business.

“One of our members, Arnold Fewell, is a champion for people with disabilities and through him we have done lots of things, such as getting a defibrillator in, he is a real frontrunner with things like that,” he said.

He added that the wheelchair will be a valuable asset. The club is now in its 24th year has well over 100 numbers.

MD Mobility is run by Alan and Carol Garner, who have over 20 years’ experience in the mobility sector.

It has shops in Guisborough and Northallerton and serves the Yorkshire area.
