Veteran Shopmobility service back from the brink after expanding its fleet

UK Set To Experience Another Wash Out Summer

A Shopmobility service in North Wales is relaunching next week after it managed to pool together enough equipment to operate a full fleet of mobility scooters catering for local residents.

The public is being invited to a relaunch event of the 20-year-old equipment hire service, which is operated by the Association of Voluntary Organisations in Wrexham (AVOW).       

Several new mobility scooters, powerchairs and other pieces of equipment have been purchased after funding was granted by Wrexham County Borough.

The fleet is now comprised of 30 mobility scooters of various kinds. Models are hired on a daily basis and boot scooters for longer periods.

The Mayor of Wrexham and a local councillor will be attending the event and speaking to people about the service to help reintroduce the service to the community.

Shopmobility services help less mobility individuals access town centres and shops. They are an affordable option for people who are unable to purchase a piece of equipment.
