Helping Audrey to Remain Independent

Audrey

Classic Mobility works with TechMed to provide a service to clients for small adaptations, such as ramps and handrails, to make their lives easier. We received a referral to assist Audrey, a lovely lady who asked us to replace steps with a gentle ramp.

Audrey can walk with assistance (e.g. handrails) but finds steps difficult. She also uses a wheelchair for longer forays with friends and family, therefore the steps from the front door were a hindrance. Audrey wanted to be more independent and the ramp has given her confidence to exit her house unaided.


'The only option for me to escape the confines of my house was a bespoke access ramp. This was so cleverly designed and expertly crafted by Classic Mobility and now allows me the easy access and departure I desired, thank you again.'

1000 Mile Cycle Challenge

Carol

Our Office Manager, Carol, has set herself a 1000-mile cycle challenge for 2018, with a target of £1 per mile so that her chosen charity for Breast Cancer research can receive £1,000 towards their excellent work.

In 2015, Carol had to have a mastectomy. The support she received during the months of treatment and rehabilitation that followed made her determined to enjoy life and inspired her to raise money in aid of Cancer Research UK (youcanbeatbreastcancer.org). This is a way of 'giving something back' to help future generations beat cancer.

Please visit Carol's 'Just Giving' page which tells her story in her own words. If you would like to donate and supporty Carol's challenge, that would be lovely.
