The Joe Gilson Mobility Scheme presents its 53rd and 54th mobility scooter.

The Joe Gilson Mobility Scheme has presented two scooters to a Honiton man with severe health problems - the 53rd and 54th to be given away.

They were presented to Mr Whitehouse, of Cypress Close, by the scheme’s founder, Carol Gilson.

One of the scooters will be used by Mr Whitehouse to go to the shops and the other, a folding scooter, will go in the back of his car to ensure he has complete mobility.

Carol runs the mobility scheme in memory of her late husband, who donated the first scooter.

She thanked everyone who has donated to and supported the scheme and RKL Tools who have a collection box for the initiative.
