The Red Cross are extremely grateful and excited for the fantastic donation towards our mobility aids service in Shropshire from the Roddam Charity, enabling us to buy new wheelchairs.
The Red Cross helps people in crisis and our Medical Equipment Service aims to improve the mobility, safety, independence and inclusion of vulnerable people who have mobility problems. These problems can be due to age, illness, operations, disabilities, injuries or accidents. We achieve this goal by providing medical equipment, such as wheelchairs and helping people to use the equipment safely.
During 2018 in the TF10 area, we were able to support 29 people with wheelchair loans across Newport, Edgmond, Tibberton and Lilleshall.
