3:19pm Thursday 8th August 2013 in News
A CAMPAIGN to buy a disabled man from Colne a new mobility scooter has raised £2,790.
Christopher ‘Sharpy’ Sharp, 42, of Fern Street, who has an inherited neurological muscle wasting disease, bought a second-hand scooter but it was confiscated by police after it was discovered it had been stolen.
A fun day was held at the Union Exchange, in Colne, featuring a band, barbecue, singer, DJ and face painting, which raised £1,790. Asda also donated almost £1,000.
Organiser Deborah Robinson said: “A grand total of £1,790 was made, not including Asda’s donation, so we’re very pleased and will now be able to get the scooter Sharpy needs.
“A big massive thank-you goes to everybody who helped to make this day possible.”
