Over 20 mobility scooters provided to limbless veterans as Electric Mobility continues BLESMA support
Electric Mobility has once again supported the British Limbless Ex-Service Men’s Association’s (BLESMA) members during the 101st-anniversary Cenotaph Parade on Remembrance Sunday 2019.
Held on Sunday 10th of November in London, the event saw the mobility supplier commit to helping some 40 BLESMA’s members march with 10,000 others in honour of their colleagues and to remember those who were lost in the First World War.
Electric Mobility’s dedicated Warehouse Manager Dave Pierce devoted his own time to coordinate delivery of the scooters to Horse Guards Parade for the Remembrance Parade, providing over 20 Rascal 338 S and Rascal 388 XL mobility scooters for limbless veterans.
“We are strongly committed to supporting this great veteran charity and will continue to provide mobility scooters to give the veterans the opportunity to fully take part in the parade to pay their respects to those that are lost but not forgotten,” commented Elaine Leighton, Marketing & Communications Manager for Electric Mobility.
“Electric Mobility as a company is extremely passionate about aiding serving and ex-military personnel with this important event in the calendar, highlighting just one example of how our products really can improve the lives of heroes for the better by enabling them to remain independent.”
Marking 101 years since the end of the First World War, Remembrance Day is observed on 11 November to remember the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th-month date in 1918 hostilities formally ended.
BLESMA, who are the only national Armed Forces Charity that supports limbless veterans who have lost limbs or lost the use of limbs for the duration of their lives by providing rehabilitation activities and welfare support, also celebrated their 101st year of service.
Electric Mobility’s 16th year working alongside the organisation, this year saw 23 of the charity’s members participate on mobility scooters, along with the walking wounded, widows and carers behind them.
The 23 Ex-Demo 388S and 388XL mobility scooters are now available to purchase from the mobility supplier at a discounted price, with Electric Mobility advising trade partners to contact their Area Dealer Manager for more information.https://thiis.co.uk/over-20-mobility-scooters-provided-to-limbless-veterans-as-electric-mobility-continues-blesma-support/https://i1.wp.com/thiis.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/Electric-Mobility-Proud-to-support-BLESMA-16th-Year.jpg?fit=900%2C711&ssl=1https://i1.wp.com/thiis.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/Electric-Mobility-Proud-to-support-BLESMA-16th-Year.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1NewsroomSupplier NewsTrade News101st-anniversary,Area Dealer Manager,British Limbless Ex-Service Men's Association,Cenotaph Parade,Dave Pierce,Electric Mobility,First World War,Horse Guards Parade,Remembrance Sunday 2019Electric Mobility has once again supported the British Limbless Ex-Service Men's Association’s (BLESMA) members during the 101st-anniversary Cenotaph Parade on Remembrance Sunday 2019.Held on Sunday 10th of November in London, the event saw the mobility supplier commit to helping some 40 BLESMA’s members march with 10,000 others in honour...Calvin BarnettCalvin Barnettcalvin@thiis.co.ukAdministratorTHIIS Magazine
