Malcolm goes fishing

Posted 24 September 2019 in Stories

Malcolm is a keen fisherman who enjoys nothing more than spending a sunny afternoon catching carp. Transporting his ever-growing fishing kit to the lake was getting to be an increasing problem though, and his health conditions weren’t making things easier.

Remap helped Malcolm to continue his fishing expeditions to the local lake. He already had a fishing cart to carry all his things in and he’s able to push it a long way as long as he can sit down for a rest when he needs to. Local volunteer, Ashley, custom-made a folding stool which mounts to his trolley handle, meaning Malcolm can take a quick breather at any time.

Malcolm is delighted with his new stool and looks forward to resuming his fishing trips. He’s even promised to bring Ashley a catch or two back as a thank you!
