Following their recent support of The Royal British Legion (RBL) and MS War Hero Simon Angel at the Mobility Roadshow in Peterborough, TGA have decided once again to invite members of the charity to collect donations at their Summer Showroom Sale with a percentage of TGA profits also going to the RBL. (Woodhall Business Park, Sudbury - 20th - 22nd July, 9am-5pm.)
TGA Mobility considers the work of the RBL absolutely essential which has compelled the business to donate 5 of all profits from the showroom sale to the charity. Collection tins will also be available for the general public to donate as they browse around the many quality mobility scooters on offer and whilst meeting several local RBL representatives. Daniel Stone, TGA Managing Director comments: "Once again we are delighted to be working with the British Legion to raise funds for injured ex servicemen and women. Simon Angel's 900-mile Rally for Remembrance on one of our Breeze 4 mobility scooters was a huge success earlier in the year and it is fantastic that fundraising momentum has continued following this epic voyage. In addition to members of the RBL being in attendance, our Summer Showroom Sale is always very popular with less able Suffolk residents as it provides an ideal opportunity for them to not only grab a bargain, but to discuss their mobility needs for free with our in-house specialists. With quality nearly new and ex-demo TGA mobility scooters from as little as 195, visitors to our showroom will be able to take advantage of some great deals. Our new Breeze S4 will also be on display which is the latest version of the mobility scooter that Simon Angel used to successfully travel over 900-miles without any hassle during his 30-day fundraiser back in April. Complementing this national favourite, the eye-catching funky TGA Vita, the compact and flexible car boot Eclipse scooter and the renowned 'Harley Davidson style' Supersport will be available for test drives."
Simon Angel, aged 46 from Pembury, was a member of the Royal Engineers for 22 years and has served all around the world with front line experience in Northern Ireland and during the Gulf War, which lead to an MBE from The Queen in 2000. During a period of convalescence at Tyrwhitt House where he was treated for Combat Stress, he conceived the idea of his 'Rally for Remembrance' whilst talking to fellow ex-military personnel. Simon now lives with severe MS triggered by his wartime traumas however his medical condition did not hold him back from completing this remarkable achievement. During April this year, he travelled the complete length of Britain on a mobility scooter kindly loaned by TGA Mobility and raised nearly 10k for The Royal British Legion (RBL) and another military charity. Simon completed this remarkable journey ahead of schedule and managed to travel the whole distance in just 30 days. Since April, Simon has continued to collect donations and following his recent appearance at The Mobility Roadshow, his charitable funds have now topped 15k.
Daniel Stone concludes: As this special event promises to be very successful as it is every year, we felt it would be the ideal time to add to the total raised by Simon for the British Legion through our business donating a percentage of profits. The voluntary community fundraisers for the British Legion and the Poppy Appeal are a real inspiration and we thoroughly enjoyed supporting them at the Roadshow last week."
