Daniel Salter and his employer, TGA Mobility based in Suffolk, have made a second donation to The J’s Hospice in Essex despite his charity cycle ride coming to a dramatic end through a burst tyre.

The charity supports young adults with life-limiting conditions and their families across Essex, in the comfort of their own homes. He works as a Product Consultant for TGA Mobility based in Sudbury which provides quality and reliable mobility scooterswheelchairs and powerpacksacross the UK.

Daniel, aged 30 from Sudbury, previously completed The J’s Hospice 2016 Chelmsford Marathon so that his employer would donate a lightweight and ergonomic StrongBack wheelchair to the charity. When he delivered the wheelchair to The J’s office in Great Baddow, he met members of the charity’s healthcare team and a patient, Alice, who inspired him to support The J’s again on the recent ‘Pedal for The J’s’ 80km / 50 mile charity bike ride. Read more…

Daniel To Cycle 50 Miles To Complete TGA Mobility’s Wheelchair And Powerpack Donation To Js Hospice

Daniel Salter, aged 30 from Sudbury, is taking on his second sporting challenge for The J’s Hospice to add a powerpack to the charity’s pioneering new folding wheelchair – donated by TGA Mobility.

Man in front of TGA Mobility VanDaniel is a keen cyclist and runner and works as a mobility product consultant for TGA, the UK-leading mobility scooter and product specialist based in Suffolk. Last year, he signed up for the 2016 Chelmsford Marathon which is organised by The J’s Hospice. It was his first ever marathon and he was inspired to do something special for the charity, so he asked his employer to donate a lightweight and ergonomic StrongBack wheelchair and TGA kindly agreed.

The J’s Hospice charity improves the lives of young adults (aged 16-40) with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions and their families across Essex, in the comfort of their own homes. When Daniel delivered the wheelchair to The J’s, he was delighted to meet some of the hospice’s nurses, healthcare assistants and a patient. They were so pleased with the wheelchair that he decided to support them again – this time on his bicycle!

The Pedal for The J’s cycle ride starts and finishes at Admiral’s Park in Chelmsford on Sunday 30th April. Cyclists have a choice of three routes through the beautiful Essex countryside – 15, 35 and 50 miles – plus a new 2-mile, off-road Pedal in the Park ride for families with younger children on their bikes, trikes and scooters. Daniel has signed up for the 50 mile / 80 km ride as his latest charitable challenge and asked TGA if they would kindly help him to support The J’s Hospice again.

This time, TGA has agreed to donate a motorized Wheelchair Powerpack to The J’s if Daniel completes the ride. The TGA Solo Powerpack can be fitted to the StrongBack wheelchair that they have donated – this will provide a complete mobility solution that is easier for carers to use. The TGA Powerpack consists of a motorized unit and wheel(s) that help drive an attendant-controlled wheelchair forward so the stresses and strains of pushing are reduced for carers. All four models in the TGA Powerpack range are extremely reliable and ensure tackling slopes, uneven ground and kerbs when pushing a wheelchair is no issue at all.  Read more….
