The Walker Fund for Mobility Scooters

We are raising funds to replace the 4 wheel all terrain electric mobility scooters in the Park. The Park currently has 3 of these machines and they give enormous pleasure to many disabled people who visit the Park. They are over 10 years old and are showing their age with regular repairs being required. They each cost c £7,400 and we are starting a fund to replace them at one per year over the next few years. We are currently applying for grants but we will have to raise some of the funding directly.

Covid has restricted our efforts so far this year but we have created a donation fund, The Walker Fund. This is in gratitude for a large donation from one of our lady members, in memory of her late husband. If you wish to make a donation you can do so by sending a cheque to any of the committee members listed in the Contacts page. Cheques should be made out to “Friends of Temple Newsam Park” and write on the back “Walker Fund”.
