Presentation of Tabards by the Colwall Rotary Club to members of Jamboree for the use of those using the Tramper – a countryside mobility scooter which allows disabled people to access the Malvern Hills.
The mobility scooter was bought by Jamboree in cooperation with Colwall Rotary Club, WestFest and the management of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Jamboree is an established local Co-operative of adult members each of whom have a learning disability. The H2O café at the Wyche Innovation Centre gives the members an opportunity to prepare and serve fresh food, interact with the customers, and share in the profits. Team Jamboree operate the cafe at weekends as well as during the week.
As well as helping to purchase the tramper Colwall Rotarians have volunteered to accompany any user of the Tramper who are unaccompanied themselves.
Tony Brook of Colwall Rotary said, “This project allowing disabled people to access the Hills is one we felt very important to help get off the ground and remain passionate about supporting people to use the Tramper in the future”
