MALMESBURY LEAGUE OF FRIENDS & MALMESBURY AREA COMMUNITY TRUST BUY OFF-ROAD SCOOTER FOR DISABLED MALMESBURY RESIDENT

10th June 2022, 2:41pm | By David |

Malmesbury League of Friends (MLOF) and the Malmesbury Area Community Trust (MACT have helped a disabled Malmesbury resident by purchasing her an off-road mobility scooter, which will enable her to access places which, until now, have not been possible for her to visit.

Kathy Hughes, a resident at Burnham Court, has suffered from multiple sclerosis (MS) since 2007, but leads an incredibly active life despite her disability.

The mother of two adult children, Kathy worked in the horse racing industry and enjoyed riding and competing her own horses; her daughter took her skydiving in Switzerland, where she lives. Kathy obtained a flying scholarship, which provided training towards a private pilot’s licence and she also enjoys being part of the crew on a specially adapted Tall Ship.

Kathy has already visited Westonbirt Arboretum in her new vehicle. She said: “I am so grateful to MLOF and MACT for their generosity. The off-road scooter will transform my life by enabling me to visit people and places that, until now, I could only dream about.”

MLOF chairman David Hide said: “Kathy is an amazing lady, whose determination and positive attitude is inspiring. We were delighted to help purchase this vehicle for her.”
