Shopmobility toasts Tokyo Joe's

 
Inverclyde Council on Disability's Shopmobility service today toasted support from licensed venue and local night club Tokyo Joe's after its proprietor Raphael donated £100 towards ICOD's scooter service and a meal for two for the local service's 1,000th customer. 
 
ICOD's chairperson Jim MacLeod said: "This was a very generous donation from Raphael . He has not only donated £100 sponsorship for one of our scooters but also gave a meal for two to our 1,000th member Alistair McKechnie. Alistair became our 1,000th customer when he hired a scooter during the Tall Ships event to help him get round the waterfront site. As Mr McKechnie told us without the use of one of our scooters he would not have managed to have seen the Tall Ships while they were in Greenock . As our 1,000th member ICOD have given Mr McKechnie a life time membership." 
 
Tokyo Joe proprietor Raphael said: "I am only too pleased to support the local Shopmobility service. The service does a lot of good for many people in Inverclyde."
 
Mr McKechnie who recently became  Shopmobility 's 1,000th member said: "The first time I used the scooter service was when the Tall Ships event was in Greenock . As I find it difficult to get around now the local service allowed me the chance to get to see all the tall ships and the other attractions that were on the site. Without theuse of a scooter I would definately not have got far and would not have seen much at the event. It is a g really great service."

Celtic Club Supports Shopmobility
 
Greenock Celtic supporters club have made a £100 donation to Inverclyde Council on Disability's Shopmobility service.
 
ICOD's chairperson Jim MacLeod said: "This is a very generous donation from the Greenock Celtic Supporters Club and its members towards keeping our scooters and our mobility equipment on the road. Our Shopmobility service has been going for nine years now and it has given many disabled people in Inverclyde, and beyond, the opportunity to get out and about independently throughout the year.
 
"Our members don't only use the service to go shopping but also use it for every day activities and even assisting many to go on holiday. It has proven to be a lifeline to many older and disabled people in Inverclyde."
 
Jim Friel, Vice Chaiperson of the Greenock Celtic Spporters Club said: "The Celtic Supporters Club are very happy to sponsor one of the Shopmobility scooters. It is great to see the numbers of disabled people using the scooter service around the town."
