Unity, a Test Valley charity based in Andover, took stock of three new mobility scooters this week which are available for people who may weight up to 28 stone. The scooters include three and four wheeled vehicles giving added manoeuvrability helping people to access local amenities more easily.
Last year 3,414 trips were made locally using Unity mobility equipment and 30 people were able to hire equipment for extended periods such as weekends, holidays or during a time when someone had an injury and required help.

These scooters will provide customers with reliability and help us improve our service locally. Unity would have been unable to purchase these items without generous donations from customers and we would like to thank them all for continuing to support the service in this way. Each scooter can cost an average of £2,000 each and we simply could not replace them without this financial support.”
