In glorious sunshine, TGA, the nationwide specialist in mobility scooters, has successfully hosted its latest Safe Scooter Driving and Charity Awareness Day at its Sudbury Mobility Showroom.
The TGA Safe Scooter Driving and Charity Awareness Day provided the opportunity for existing and prospective mobility scooter users, to learn the latest techniques for competent driving in a safe and welcoming atmosphere. All visitors were able to experience the TGA test track which compromised of obstacles typically found when travelling on a scooter. Helpful and trained TGA advisors guided visitors as they attempted manoeuvres such as crossing the road or tackling uneven surfaces.
As TGA is committed to maximising safety, this free event focused on building confidence and a better understanding of individual capabilities so driving is more controlled and considered. There were also free health checks available for scooter owners along with guidance on choosing the right scooter for individual needs. TGA leads the field in personalised assessment so people maximise their independence through appropriate scooters that suit individual abilities, lifestyles and locations. Only by test driving a scooter before purchase can owners truly decide whether a specific model of scooter is right for them.
Alongside the test track, eight relevant charities supported the event this year so locals could discover the many services on offer to support people living with restricted mobility or disability. The charities were: Alzheimer’s Society, Bridge Project, Colchester Catalyst, Drive Ability, MS Society, Parkinson’s UK, Rehab United, Success After Stroke and Suffolk Family Carers.
Daniel Stone, TGA Managing Director, concludes: “Our latest safe mobility scooter driving event was a success for all who attended – feedback was very positive. Bathed in sunshine, we were able to advise a healthy number of visitors who were seeking the safest way to drive a scooter. Our test track always offers a unique opportunity to experience all types of scooters in a controlled and safe place. It also reiterates our commitment to personalised assessment and customer-focused service. The atmosphere was excellent especially as we had so many charities attending this year – I would like to thank all concerned for their support.”
