Ribble Valley Shopmobility is a charity funded organisation which provides scooters and manual and powered wheelchairs to enable people with limited mobility to shop independently and use the town centre facilities.
The scheme may be used by young or old no matter whether their disability is temporary or permanent. First time users will need to register (free of charge) and training in the use of the vehicle will be provided. A small charge for the hire of the equipment is made to ensure the future running of the scheme and further donations are also welcome.
Ribble Valley Shopmobility is located in cabin 1 on Clitheroe market and is open on market days (Tuesdays, Thursdays & Saturday) from 9.30-4.00pm. The scheme is located close to car parking facilities so that when passengers arrive, they are able to park within 15/20 metres and transfer to their chosen vehicle.
There is also a 'Tramper' for hire which is an off road scooter which is ideal for country walks. The vehicle can also be delivered to surrounding rural areas for a small charge providing transport is available at the requested time.
All scooters and wheelchairs may be available for hire outside the stated times/days providing someone is around to open up. Please telephone the number below for further details.
In addition to hiring out mobility equipment the cabin also has a small display of visually impaired items for sale. These can be purchased and taken immediately and other items from the catalogue will be delivered to the cabin within 2 working days.
For any questions or to pre-book a vehicle please telephone 07594 550130 or email: email@example.com
