TGA Mobility To Host Suffolk Safe Mobility Scooter Driving Awareness Day

TGA, the leading local specialist for quality mobility scooters and independent living products, will be hosting its latest free safe driving awareness day on Thursday 27th July. 11am – 3pm. Woodhall Business Park, Sudbury, Suffolk. CO10 1WH.

This fun event will give mobility scooter users and prospective owners the opportunity to learn the latest safe driving tips around the TGA test track – with the help of friendly experts. This will be an informal and relaxed driving experience which will give scooter owners a better understanding of their own capabilities in terms of steering, reversing and negotiating day-to-day obstacles. Crossing roads in a safe manner and understanding aspects of the Highway Code will be explained so scooter users, drivers and pedestrians can all benefit from improved safety. This is not a driving test with a pass or fail score, it is simply an awareness programme that offers an informal certificate of completion at the end.

Visitors can bring their own scooter for a free health check or test drive any model in TGA’s comprehensive range. The charities Parkinson’s UKMS Society and Macmillan will be supporting the event along with the Police and Rehab United. There will be a charity cake sale and an unmissable 25% off all showroom scooters, adjustable chairs and wheelchairs.

Daniel Stone, TGA Managing Director, says: “We welcome all existing and potential mobility scooter users from across East Anglia to come to our safe driving day. It will help everyone gain confidence and discover how to enjoy independence with maximum safety and peace of mind.”

TGA Mobility help vulnerable and homeless Sudbury wheelchair user

TGA Mobility, the UK’s leading mobility scooter specialist with an Independent Living showroom in Sudbury, has donated a new wheelchair to help a well recognised vulnerable and disabled man who has been homeless locally for over twenty years.

TGA has a close relationship with the local constabulary as the Police support the many scooter safe driving days held at the company’s headquarters on Woodhall Business Park. Rachel Elding, Retail Development Manager, is responsible for the TGA mobility showroom which provides the largest range of quality scooterswheelchairs, rise and recliner chairs, adjustable beds and independent living aids anywhere in East Anglia. She was recently approached by Police Community Support Officer, Jamie Fudge, regarding the possible donation of a wheelchair to assist a local vulnerable male who lives in Sudbury. As TGA is a regularly supporter of local charities and good causes Rachel was delighted to help.

Commonly seen propelling himself backwards, this disabled and homeless individual had kept on the move until recently when his dilapidated wheelchair finally fell apart. This resulted in him becoming immobile and without funds to buy a replacement, the Police decided to put a call out for assistance. Read more….
