Give us your old wheelchairs and mobility aids!
Collection of unwanted wheelchairs/ mobility aids to send to Southern Africa
Do you have any old, personally owned, mobility aids? Wheelchairs, Zimmers, buggies, and crutches are being collected by us and sent to Southern Africa where they are repaired/ re-cycled and issued, through Rotary, to the people in need at no charge.
We are not allowed to collect NHS equipment from you, that must be returned by you to the NHS.
To make initial contact and register items to donate for collection please use this form.
This Rotary project has been running in another part of the UK which has so far sent over 38,000 wheelchairs to South Africa since the first shipment in 1992. The major part of the costs of shipping and repair are funded by the South African end of the operation via sponsorship.
For more details on the project see this link to the founding club's webpage on Freewheeling.
