John has leg and back problems that started when he was a child, and he can now walk only a short distance with arm crutches. He loves playing indoor bowls using a bowling wheelchair, but had to rely on other players to move him around.
Volunteer Brian Pile of Remap Bournemouth motorised one of the bowling wheelchairs for him, using spares from an old electric wheelchair.
John can now whizz around the green and says, ‘The buggy’s performance on the green is superb. I cannot thank you enough. I shall now be able to play for more years than I dared hope.’
