This coming weekend, the British Red Cross on the Isle of Wight are asking for your help.
The islands medical loan department based out of their Newport HQ are working hard to raise funds to start replacing their fleet of wheelchairs. Many have seen more than 10 years’ service and are becoming increasingly more difficult to keep running.
The Medical Loan team prides itself on the service it offers to both islanders and visitors alike and this 2013-14 Isle of Wight Wheels Appeal is all about ensuring that the service will continue for years to come.
All monies raised on the night will be used solely for the purchase of wheelchairs for the island and hopefully enable them to add some more specialised chairs for children and adults to their fleet.
There will be a number of the Red Cross team present on Saturday night at the Streatham Redskins game, I am sure the Raiders fans will show their support towards the effort.
