Lincoln-based company, Burton Mobility, has generously donated two wheelchairs to the Bransby Horses’ Visitor Centre.
The equine welfare charity welcomes visitors to the centre 362 days a year and has seen an increase in the need for mobility aids since the Visitor Centre opened in 2013. The wheelchairs allow visitors with mobility needs to access most areas of the 600 acre site which has wheelchair-friendly walkways.
Said Louise Wass, Visitor Centre Manager: “We are thrilled with the donation from Burton Mobility. The wheelchairs have greatly enhanced our ability to cater for visitors requiring mobility assistance to enjoy our facilities.”
With more than 350 rescued horses, donkeys and mules for visitors to meet, many of which are looking for a foster home, there is so much to see at the charity. The Feedroom Café and Gift Shop are also open to the public seven days a week.
Said Robert Gibbon of Burton Mobility: “We are pleased to be able to support a local charity which carries out such important animal rescue and welfare work, not just here in Lincolnshire but all over the UK.”
The Bransby Horses’ Visitor Centre is open seven days a week from 10.00am-4.00pm. Visitors wishing to use a wheelchair can phone ahead of their visit to book one by phoning 01427 788464 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
