Jane Cox, aged 65 from Morton-in-Marsh, has won the TGA mobility scooter competition at the Mobility Roadshow and has been presented with a luxurious Fortnum & Mason hamper.
As Jane lives with Multiple Sclerosis she attended the Mobility Roadshow exhibition which was held at Stoneleigh Park Warwickshire during June. This event showcases the latest innovations in accessible and adapted vehicles for disabled drivers and passengers along with a vast range of mobility products including scooters, wheelchairs, hoists and ramps. Jane was seeking a suitable accessible vehicle with adapted steering controls and compatible car boot mobility scooter. She drove several scooters around TGA’s test track which included a series of ramps and obstacles designed to give a ‘real’ driving experience. Jane was able to see why TGA’s award-winning range is renowned for outstanding manoeuvrability, style and comfort. By completing the test track course Jane was able to enter TGA’s hamper competition and subsequently won.
Jane comments: “I have never won anything before so receiving this news was wonderful! Daniel from TGA personally delivered my hamper to our home and I was happy to have a picture taken as I support the RNLI (who also photograph their prize winners) so am used to these kind of things. We had a good time at The Mobility Roadshow, we were there all day and had a jolly good look round. I tried most of the TGA range on their test track so I could get a feel for which scooter would be right for me. Amongst these I tried the Minimo Plus 4 as we are looking for one that will fit in a car and has four wheels so I feel more stable. It was very comfortable and much better than my old three-wheeler.”
Jane adds: “The Roadshow allowed me to test drive several cars with adapted hand controls as my husband and I are still researching which is the best combination of scooter and vehicle. Winning the TGA hamper was an extra bonus.”
