Caring Croyland Make Special Delivery for Disabled Youngster

When an appeal was made to deliver a much-needed wheelchair to a disabled boy Croyland Car Megastore were happy to help.

When the Rushden based Business heard that a donated wheelchair needed to be driven over a hundred miles to reach the youngster, they stepped in to make the special delivery.

The wheelchair, which was donated by Mick Bates of Select Motor Company in Kettering, needed to be transported from Northamptonshire to Harley Mall, 4, who lives with his family in Bristol.

Big-hearted business Croyland organised to personally deliver the wheelchair, which was gratefully received by Harley's family.

Harley was born with tibial hemimelia and had his right leg amputated through the knee at a year old.

Harley's mum Lisa Jimenez said: "A big, big thank you! This is going to make a massive difference to our lives.

"You really are amazing! The wheelchair has given Harley the independence to do what the other children are doing and get around school much easier."

Croyland responded to the appeal for help which went out via a Facebook page for car dealers who trade stock, which has 11,000 members.

The recent appeal went out on a Friday and by the Monday Croyland had delivered the wheelchair for Harley.

Mark Swindells, General Manager of Croyland Car Megastore, said: "It was great that Mick Bates was able to donate the wheelchair for Harley and we were more than happy to arrange to have it delivered to the family. We are glad to hear how the wheelchair has helped Harley and his family."
