My social life would be seriously hampered without my scooter. Before I had my mobility scooter I was reliant on my mum or my friends for transport, or else the wheelchair taxi.
I really wanted more freedom and independence.
One day I saw a mobility scooter outside a chemist and decided I wanted to give it a try. It didn’t take long at all to get the hang of it, and I love it now.
I can go into town, to the shops, to the movies, meet friends for coffee – whenever I like. I’m really looking forward to when the buses can take scooters then I’ll be going to the Mount and over to Bayfair.
The freedom it gives me is fantastic.
