Donating a mobility scooter

Posted 26 Oct 2015 at 19:28
Hi not sure if anyone can help! My dad passed away from Prostate Cancer on the 5th October but before he passed he was using a mobility scooter. After his funeral today it dawned on me that id like to donate his scooter to someone living with prostate cancer if it would help?

Does anybody know how I can do that or if it would even be of use?

So sorry to hear of you losing your Dad. Perhaps, if there are no suggestions or people wanting a mobility scooter, you could sell it and donate it to 'Movember' or Prostate cancer charity ?

Thank you. I may do that if I don't get any further comments, thank you for the idea.

Thanks again

Hi Steph, I hope today went well - it is amazing that you can think about other people on such a difficult day.

If no-one here needs the scooter, I suspect your local hospice or McMillan nurses will know of someone who can't afford to buy one.

Thank you Lyn. The idea just dawned on me so thought I'd act upon it.

That's also a lovely idea. I would like it to go to a good home.

Thank you

Just to say sorry for your loss.

I hope today wasn't too difficult for you, although your dad's sudden death must have been a dreadful shock.

Best Wishes for the future and here's hoping that happier memories will help you through this sad time

Thank you-it was such a shock. My dad hasn't even been diagnosed so we didn't know quite how unwell he was.

He had a beautiful day today and he was definitely in the sunshine.

Thank you

Hi Steph,

When my partner died last year, I re-homed the lightweight wheelchair we had bought  to the local Macmillan centre. They were delighted as to my disbelief, they only had one old, heavy wheelchair to use which was uncomfortable for staff to push. I am sure  a hospice or similar centre would  appreciate your mobility scooter !

love the idea of you donating dads scooter, it does seem that McMillian would be a good place to ask
