Club helps out Alice with chair

THE Swivel Club helped out a woman from Higham Ferrers by giving her a power wheelchair.

The club presented 85-year old Alice Wood with the chair at Rushden Bowls Club on Thursday.

Mrs Wood is the latest in a long line of people who have been helped by the Swivel Club. The club has bought various pieces of equipment to help people over the years.

Mr Wood’s son and carer Paul Wood said the new wheelchair would make a world of difference to her.

He said: “This is so nice of the Swivel Club, it will change our lives and it will mean I can get Mum out a bit more.”

Swivel Club chairman Rodney Waterfield said: “It has yet again been a pleasure to help one of our needy disabled residents.”
