Parkgate Mobility recently heard about 98 year old Norma King from Kirkby, Notts after a police appeal.  Her mobility scooter along with her handbag we stolen from her front garden.  The scooter was later found abondoned and destroyed in a nearby park.

Following this appeal, we donated a mobility scooter to Mrs King.  If anyone has any information relating to this crime, we ask them to contact the Police on 101 quoting reference number 594 of July 15, 2018, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111

Parkgate Mobility Business Manager Tracy Simmons said: “It’s disgusting that these thieves targeted an elderly and vulnerable woman and stole her scooter which was her lifeline, giving her independence and freedom. “We wanted to help her after hearing what happened and we’ve now given her a good-quality second-hand scooter to replace her stolen one. “We’ve tried to find a match for her old scooter but if it’s not suitable for Mrs King we will swap it for one that is.”

We wish Norma all the best with her new scooter.
