Family donates mobility scooter to Rochdale Shopmobility after loved one's death
Date published: 18 November 2021
The family of Elizabeth McNeill from Rochdale have kindly donated her mobility scooter to Rochdale Shopmobility after she sadly passed away to help others enjoy the town centre.
Rochdale Shopmobility provides members – regardless of age or disability – with wheelchairs and scooters so that all can access the town centre’s facilities with ease and enjoyment.
Michelle Hollinrake, manager of Rochdale Shopmobility, said: “The executive committee, staff and members would like to thank Elizabeth’s family for their kind donation to the charity.”
Rochdale Shopmobility, sited on River Street, close to the Rochdale Interchange, opened in September 1993. It was initially housed in the former bus station prior to its demolition, moving to a temporary site on Baillie Street before moving to its permanent site on River Street in 2015.
Registering as a charity in June 1995, the organisation charges a membership fee of just £10 per year for use of its facilities for three hours each day.
Shopmobility also provides escorts for people with sensory difficulties, to help with shopping.
All scooters are sanitised before each hire.
Current opening hours can be found on their website.
