This week we throw back to last May and a great event Luton Shopmobility took part in.
Carnivals have been part of summer celebrations across the UK for years and it is good to see some that are still thriving and really focusing on inclusion of the whole community.
Staff, volunteers and customers from Luton Shopmobility took part in the local International Carnival. Aimed at promoting excellence within the field of carnival arts, the decorative Ladybird mobility scooters were no exception!
Luton Shopmobility, (based in The Mall, Luton) teamed up with City Arts – Nottingham and Can Samba to decorate their mobility scooters for the event.
Jayn Harris, Manager at Luton Shopmobility commented. “The day was a great success, and we couldn’t believe the fantastic reaction we received from the local crowd. As a charity, we understand the hardship mobility users’ face. That is why we try to and restore self-confidence and show people how a mobility scooter can give you freedom and independence.”
Jayn Continued: “We’d like to thank our staff, volunteers but most of all our customers for taking part and really getting into the festival spirit.

Lavinia Douglass, Marketing Manager at The Mall, Luton added: “Shopmobility really do go the extra mile! It is great to see the charity taking part in local events to help raise awareness. Mobility scooters can restore self-confidence, combat loneliness and social exclusion.”
There are a number of shopmobility schemes within the federation who take part in their local carnival each year. Are you are interested in taking part in your local carnival? Then contact your local shopmobility to see if they are taking part in next year’s carnival. This is a great way to promote and raise awareness of shopmobility and the services they provide.
Remember shopmobility is for anyone who has a mobility impairment, regardless of whether is a temporary or permanent issue. You can contact your local scheme to find out about their services and charges by searching our online directory HERE.
