Hello to you all
i am posting with regards to two separate issues that I’m hoping others could help with.
1) I have SpinaBifida and have therefore always walked on crutches and also suffer significantly from chronic pain. Sadly, my microlight Mobilty scooter was stolen from underneath my camper van on Sunday when I was away at an XR drumming camp in Malvern☹️
It looks as if there might be a crowd funder to help me replace it so I’m looking for the cheapest way to do this.
I was wondering if anybody had any ideas about this and also if anybody could recommend an alternative to the microlite? This is because, although it is indeed light and can fold up which is useful, I found it to be constantly falling over which has led me into some quite hairy situations😬😬
As this message is quite long, I will post separately about my other query.

Thank you to anybody who can be of assistance re. the above.
