Wheelchair Push ~ Aug 2007

Wed 1st August 2007

The Rotary Club of Southport Links continued with their annual Wheelchair Push around the Southport Flower Show on a wet Saturday morning. Ten Rotarians under the guidance of John Heddon picked up ten residents of Ellerslie Court Home in their wheelchairs and spent two hours showing them the delights of the Flower Show. Despite the weather, the floral displays and other features of the Show delighted the residents and gave them another much appreciated outing. Sheila Pine from Glasgow and one of the residents at Ellerslie Court commented “I think it’s wonderful that they take time to come and help everyone here. If it wasn’t for people like them we would not get out. The Flower Show Push is a big day out for us and we would like to say a big, big thank you to Rotary for everyone who has taken the time and effort to come out in this bad weather”
