A Fenland club has been given an electric mobility scooter by a charity shop.
The Open Chest Charity Shop, March, donated the scooter to Wisbech & District Stroke Club, which has several members who have difficulty getting around.
Kathy Dudley, Open Chest shop manager, said: “The scooter had been donated to us and I remembered helping the stroke club last year with a monetary donation.
“So I wondered if they would be able to make good use of it.”
Peter Fewster, Wisbech District Stroke Club secretary, said: “The scooter is a very generous gift that will be available to all club members to use.
