High Wycombe Shopmobility Celebrates 25 years1
High Wycombe Shopmobility is a small, friendly local charity, who offer free daily hire of mobility equipment. They have been providing for those with limited mobility to use in the town centre for 25 years now.
High Wycombe Shopmobility History
They first opened their doors in April 1994. Originally located on the second floor of the old Newlands car park. They had just a handful of machines, no running water or toilet facilities! Since then they have come a long way. They now have 23 mobility scooters, 4 power chairs for daily hire and 19 manual wheelchairs for daily hire. Manual wheelchairs are also available for long term hire for a small fee.
Celebrating 25 years
They celebrated their Anniversary on Saturday 16th June. Tea and cakes were served at their shop in Eden Shopping Centre. Customers, supporters and local dignitaries attended the successful event.
They won the National Federation of Shopmobility’s Tom Hillier Award. The Award is for providing excellent service and disability awareness events. The award means they are the best in the country! Another cause for celebration.
Their team of dedicated staff and volunteers are there 7 days a week. They are ready to help you visit the town and regain your independence. If you would like more information on how the service could benefit you or have a spare few hours each week and would like to volunteer with them please contact the shop on 01494 472277 or visit their website www.shopmobilityhighwycombe.co.uk
