From ugly duckling to beautiful swan

Willen Hospice Swan Float

Nifty Lifts, in the form of their Product Designer Sam Thornton, are helping Willen Hospice to fulfill  a long wished for dream this Summer - a Swan on a float to allow children to enjoy the thrill of a ride brought to their house/street/event. 

A call was put out to Grand Union Rotary Club to ask for volunteers to help sand down the embryonic Swan, prior to painting and the addition of the clever electronics. 

Photo of the ‘Ugly Duckling’ is attached (I don’t mean Fred!) with Sam and Fred helping to transform her.
