Representatives from eight charities attended a Suffolk event designed to promote the safe driving of mobility scooters.

The day was organised by TGA, a Sudbury-based manufacturer of mobility products, whose trainers advised existing and prospective mobility scooter users on manoeuvres such as crossing the road or tackling uneven surfaces.

Alongside the test track, eight relevant charities supported the event so attendees could find out about the services on offer to support people living with restricted mobility or disability.

The charities were: Alzheimer’s Society, Bridge Project, Colchester Catalyst, Drive Ability, MS Society, Parkinson’s UK, Rehab United, Success After Stroke and Suffolk Family Carers.

TGA managing director, Daniel Stone, said: “We were able to advise a healthy number of visitors who were seeking the safest way to drive a scooter. Our test track always offers a unique opportunity to experience all types of scooters in a controlled and safe place.”
