We are proud to say that we have a 40-year history supplying mobility aids to anyone in our community who is struggling with infirmity or disability. This service is made possible by the generosity of local people who’ve donated their 3- and 4-wheel walkers, Zimmer frames and mobility scooters to The Pigs, to help others who might be in similar situations.
The Alresford Pigs work closely with the Giles Group (www.gilesgroup.org.uk), and the Alresford Community Centre, to reach out to anyone with mobility issues, to get them the aids that could possibly help. Plus the Pigs keep a stock of such aids that have been donated – wheelchairs, crutches, Zimmer frames, 3- and 4-wheel Rollators, as well as the powered mobility scooters – for offering to anyone who needs a little help. Many of these are even used on a temporary basis after younger residents have been involved in skiing, snow-boarding or ladder accidents, in return for a donation, of course!
Our stock of mobility aids is held at the Alresford Men’s Shed, (www.alresfordmensshed.org.uk) at the top of the Dean in Alresford, so if you need something, or want to see one of these units to decide whether to try it, please visit the Shed, or contact the Alresford Pigs via phone or email.
