Kind reader donates wheelchair

A GENEROUS Gazette reader has donated a wheelchair to an 88-year-old cancer sufferer who was restricted in her own home because she had trouble walking.

Last week Stacey Early appealed for people to attend a Help Nanny B benefit to raise money for a wheelchair and stairlift so Betty Lavender from Hemel Hempstead could be mobile at home.

But when Silvia Holloway Smith from Highfield read about Nanny B’s plight she got in touch straight away to offer a wheelchair, which she delivered the next day.
