Whittlesey based service groups and individuals have helped fund the purchase of a specialist wheelchair for Paul Payne.

Rotarian Jenny Parker said: “Paul approached our Rotary Club to see if we could help him purchase a custom made wheelchair.

“Paul had raised some funds himself but it was not enough. We asked around and several groups, along with former mayor David Mason and a local business Gas Design who all chipped in and the chair was purchased.

“This is a terrific example of the town pulling together to help a local man”.

Paul said “I am very grateful for all the help I have received from everyone. It has made a huge difference to my life thank you very much.
