    Hi @jrmplym I’m Emma, welcome to the community. That’s great, perhaps to start you could put it up on Facebook, just incase there’s a local page for these things in Plymouth, Just going to tag @Richard_Scope to see if he has any other suggestions. Please let me know how you get on, and give me a shout if you need anything at all or have any questions.

    Hi there that is a lovely gesture and I hope you find a worthy new owner . Unfortunately we dont really have the sort of facility here to help you with this we dont have a market place or anything

    As suggested you could advertise on local selling sites or contact a local mobility charity shop who may take it from you or donate it to a care home or hospital

    What an amazing gesture and I'm sure there will be somebody that could really make use of it.
    Have you tried local groups on social media?

    Hello @jrmplym and welcome to our online community.  What a lovely thing to do, that's very kind.

    I've moved your post to our disability aids and equipment discussion group and changed the title to help it get more attention from our members who might be on the look out.

    I'd second posting it on social media.  Do you have any social media accounts you could use?
