    Hi @Nienna Welcome to the Community. British Red Cross or Age UK charity shops would be glad of the wheelchair. Take care.

    Hi @Nienna

    Welcome to Scope's forum. It is great to see you have joined us. How are you today?  :)

    I think donation is a really kind idea. You could search for charities in your local area on Google and then donate to the charity which is the closest to you and resonates the most with your values.

    Your search would look like "charities in Bristol"

    I hope this helps!  :)
